Truth


the truth is what hurts
the strength I do not have
the choice is wrong

I will stand behind a lie
I wish you could see
I will always be second

you say what you do not show
I am not blind to the truth
if this is it I don't want it

I wish you cared enough
truthfully you don't
so no more lies just good bye

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
