Truth

By Wednesday, August 13, 2014 4 No tags Permalink 0

That is it, I have nothing to say

I have a lot going through my mind

But I have nothing to say,

Because I don’t know where to start from,

I don’t know how to start

And I’m not sure I should start,

Since I won’t know how to end,

When you start lying

When you tell me ‘that’s the truth’

‘I love you and that’s the truth’

 

Love conquers all is what you will tell me next,

But I have nothing to say.

What should I say?

That I trusted you and you broke our foundation?

That you made me feel like I wasn’t good enough?

That I didn’t wrack my brain for months,

Trying to think of what has changed?

But you will tell the truth

‘I didn’t mean to hurt you’,

‘I don’t know what came over me and that’s the truth’

 

‘Just leave, get out’, I can shout from today till tomorrow,

But I will still have nothing to say

Should I tell you I don’t know how to move on?

Should I tell you I can’t look beyond now and see the future?

What do you want me to say to you?

I have lost it; the tears are falling so freely

Are you worth it?

I’m not even sure

But you will tell me the truth

‘I am not worth your forgiveness’

‘But, I can’t go on without it and that’s the truth’

 

Hurt me!!! Hurt me!!! Hurt me!!!

But I will still have nothing to say

Should I tell you I don’t know why I ever gave my life to you?

Should I tell you I can’t leave your house,

Because I have children with you?

Do I even know what I want for myself?

If I want to leave or stay

‘I will fight for you’

‘I won’t let you go just like that and that’s the truth’

 

Tell me another truth, please

Maybe then I will have something to say

Help me to understand it

Was it the devil?

Or is it just easier to blame it on him?

Was it me?

Or you can’t blame me?

I don’t want to know what went wrong,

I just want another truth

But you will still tell me the same truth

‘I love you’

‘I love you and that’s the truth’

 

Then you let me swim in a pool of lies called truths

Then you let me stay with you not knowing the truth

The truth about why you really did it.

I won’t ask you again

I will remain mute and have nothing to say

Because you will tell me,

‘I love you’

‘I love you and that’s the truth.’

    Although these days, even love has become a lie.

      IKR. It’s so crazy how everything is now. In as much as we have many love as lies, we still have the truthful one. It has just become harder to distinguish.
