I laughed all the way to heaven,
Once he told me the truth.
I thought you were like seven
The number of hocus,pocus jokes
But your face told me otherwise.
“Truth can be hurtful”, he exclaimed,
“But the truth has to be set free.
This relationship was not to be
And never will...”
Drip, drip; my tears fall down.
“We liv’n lots of lies with no love in between.
Why travel on together if we are a broken string,
Why make things worse when our minds say yes, but our hearts say no?!”
His words pierced me like a knife,
But I knew his words spook truth.
Life is true, but truth is never life.
It pains me to know this is right.
My appetite is lost.
I’ll never be the same without him,
But this is life an’ that will always be the TRUTH
