is the truth
Mar 9      Mar 11

Scars deep and hollow
I plead
And wish
For you not to walk me into the fire.

Every push you present to my back
Silently scars my heart.
Please don't make it hollow
Because I won't ever swallow
The true taste of the world.

Every soothing drop of water you give me
Heals my scars.
Every lie
Soothes it fakely.

All I ask
Is that you give me real water
Not this poison.

This poison
That turns wish into desire.
Please stop drinking it
And forcing me to swallow it.

All I ask
is the truth
Not the poison.

Then I realize
Your eyes are half-open.
I know you will despise me
But I snatch the bottle of poison from your hands
And throw it deep into the ocean.

All I wish to do
All I must do
Is open your eyes.

*Truth will forever be like grains of sand

Truth will forever be like grains of sand

seeping through the cracks of your hand

Sometimes the answers are always meant to be out of your reach...
In truth it was yours darling.

I truly am pathetic.
But not for the ways you say.
For the way that I let you tear me down.
For the way I said it was my fault.
That everything was my fault.
In truth it was yours darling.
But I thought if I blamed myself,
then you wouldn’t be hurt.
That you would feel better about yourself.
And you did,
But I didn’t.

Now this is what it’s come to?
You, writing these spiteful lies you call poetry?
Now you’ve become pathe-


I can’t speak of you this way.
I never could.
I always let you hurt me
with a smile on my face.
I always blamed myself,
though that was not the case.
I should have said something.
Stood up for myself.
But I didn’t want to hurt you,
Make you sad,
Make you feel the way I do…
I just wish
That these people,
The ones who read your poems
Knew the whole story,
My side of it.
The side that makes the heroin, the villain
That makes the abuser,
the awful, disgusting, worm of a man,
just a sad, lonely and broken boy,
willing to destroy himself to see his true love happy.

But words are powerful
And hers may be better than mine.
If so then my story may go untold,
But, believed or not,
The truth must be told
I will no longer be that pathetic, submissive soul,
but instead an instrument to show the truth
A lens of truth…

I cant just sit here and let you destroy me. The truth will be known...

You've been in love with every girl you meet
You've managed to get a heartache with them too
When will you realize that their love is not concrete
And you getting hurt is nothing new

There I lie awake
Under the stars,
I hallucinate.

Thinking of what I could be,
of what I could feel,
and of what I could see.

I open my eyes to see,
that I am just behind bars,
that this is my reality.

I wish I could find,
the better side of the deal,
with all the goodness intertwined

is there nothing
more beautiful
more endearing
more enchanting

than the person
you love more
than anything
telling you the truth

drunk poem, but I think it speaks the truth
