Truth Wept as it Lied.

The light is blinding and white.

I try to take a step but I am frozen by fright.

What is there beyond the door,

We have all wondered and asked this before.

If fear is the enemy then who is by my side

I thought it was truth  but truth wept as it  lied.

There is something though, I feel a steadying hand

A voice  is telling me that all has been planned.

Tell me please, I start to cry,

Why did he leave me, why did truth lie?

I reach for the peace I long to hold,

It always eludes me and leaves me cold.

I tread carefully along the floor,

It always betrays me and creaks as I near the door.

Will I ever know the answer, will my fears ever fly,

I though truth was my ally but truth ,well, truth  lied.

I am tired now my strength is all spent

I look for hope but he also went.

I move forward  escape to gain

But  I am betrayed my efforts in vain.

My eyes are opened  my vision now cleared

I turn for support  but it ends as I feared.

If fear is the enemy then who is by my side

I thought it was truth  but truth wept as it  lied.

    This is very well done Willow. The poetry, the imagery, the flow, the hopelessness. And it is so dark. One of a series of very dark posts that you have published lately. Are you OK Willow?

    You never cease to amaze me with your ability to take my heart, wrap it up and then lay it out flat as your words walk across my soul.

      Oh! I do hope my words are not causing you pain. That is never my intent. I shall tip toe on future. My thoughts are with you.

        Your words never cause me pain – they give me words to celebrate life. Without feelings, who would we be? Without feelings, how could I love? You have an amazing gift in putting words together and they are beautiful. Please, never hold back on my account. I want words straight from your heart. Those are the words I always appreciate the most. I do hope you start to feel better soon. Sheri
