THE EYES THAT SAW THE TRUTH

 THE EYES THAT SAW THE TRUTH

 

Secrets well hidden

Mysteries only I knew

Lies only I spoke

A fabrication of the truth

Comfort I found

Living a life of lies

Filled with sweetness and deceit

I never saw you coming

A glass house I dwelled in

But I was careless

I let the kids throw stones

I let my guard down

My fences became invisible

The line I drew…fading white

Eyes that saw through black glass

The eyes that broke the ice

The eyes that threw the largest stone

The stone that brought it all down

The eyes that saw through the lies

Eyes I dreaded

Eyes that could rewrite my story

Eyes that faded all lines

The eyes that forced the truth out of its cage

The eyes that tore the veil

Naked I became

Rid of clothes

Naked and in the cold

Undressed for all to see

THE PAIN THAT TEARS MY HEART APART

THE PAIN THAT TEARS MY HEART APART

Have you ever tasted a restrained sob

No? Well I have

You don’t get to taste d salt of your tears

All you taste is pain

Your throat constricts

Your eyes burn

You wish an end to the stabbing pain in your heart

And you cry out loud without a sound

Your stomach hurts

I look around for a place to weep

Nowhere in sight

Busy streets

Nosy neighbors

A one minute cry

A one million crowd

Steers of pity and curiosity

My mission for peace fails

So my aching legs hurry…hurry…hurry…without taking a break

I cover ground as quick as a rolling ball…

I clench my fists as I hold back another sob

Off off I go

Sweet peace I seek

A place to cry I desire at that moment

A broken heart

A pretty soul

The pain that tears my heart apart
