Veracity & Lies

imagesI told myself a pretty lie
I almost convinced myself
Might have done the unthinkable
But scarce could let myself.

‘Twas you who
Got stuck in between
You
Whose heart
Might even
Have touched.

This convincing lie
I barely could swallow
Nor let you strive
To ascertain veracity.

VACUUM

“Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”  –   Sarah Williams

 

Float away…

Sometimes it’s this dark unfeeling vacuum that gives one the space and the break one needs in life. A whirlpool may cause destruction but in the midst of it all there is an abysmal calm. That’s how I feel. Too many problems, worries, frustrations surround me but I am not completely rattled or baffled.

Just distanced. Detached. And Resigned.

Untouched

 I’ve got grit, I’ve got fire 
 But it lies unfanned.
I’ve got love, I’ve got pain

 But it lies untouched.
