when truth does not lie enough to feel safe, then there’s always faith
to fall back on,
something to fill up on
as all else burns away.
desire exchanged its wings for lead feet
one last kiss was just another undefended explanation.
tender affections cried out for shoulders to rely on
to lift up from where illusions begin
even as it is
give themselves away
what charm hides
is severity = sincerity
slight, slimmest hints
something to imply
before honesty finally comes through. Ends it all.
