The Painful Truth

Tonight, you weren’t fine,

and I felt your pain.

Tell me. Don’t tell.

I’ll just stay in my lane.

.

We keep hurting each other.

Our unintentional flow.

The truth cuts so deep,

and we go blow for blow.

.

The honesty we demand

slices painful but true.

Gouging holes in our souls —

You hold me, I hold you.

.

But you let go of my hand,

told me walk by your side.

Now our steps out of sync,

and the pain I can’t hide.

.

We’re forcing these smiles.

Wanna say it’s ok,

but your heart changed its beat,

now it skips while on play.

.

I want it all back —

your laughter, your warmth.

Honest words of true love

will help us restart.

.

The pain of the truth

is a powerful thing.

It’s essential for love,

no matter the sting.

.

Have the courage to fight

for the beautiful space

that requires hard work,

time logged face to face.

❤️
