I'm Sorry I've Lied ~ Poem

April 9, 2019



I'm sorry I've lied. 
For the ten hundredth time.
I've made a killing 
Pretending something else

Was True.


The mask that I hide,
Certainly others inside
I've peeled some back.
Here's a glimmer of Truth.


Why oh why?
Will my trust get denied?
When only the best 
I want for you?


Why oh why?
Will my heart butterfly,
When the only excuse
Is because I love you?


For centuries we've built
Walls in the silt,
Our shattered remains
Hold together not strong.






I'll admit I'm afraid,
All beheaded and shamed,
My idleness a sign
Of slowing, a symptom.


My shackles will break,
When they need to fade.
A moon will appear
Much different than it used to.


Nature will compel
With its intensity of stare,
The stars still hold space
Whether they're dead and remain.


I'm sorry I've lied.
Probably ten thousand more times.
Than I could have bared witness to.
Had I had the strength.


Believe me, please trust
That I am dropping this story.
And my past just comes to surface
To find a way out.


Conscious aware,
Of the hideous stare
I get when I meet someone
Who knows me as no one should have.


In the space we hold
How together and isolation unfold,
We are stronger in our weakness.
Together or whenever.




Can I trust me?

Can I can trust you?

Can you trust in me?


Where in my being is this? Centre and breathe.
