In Truth


My wild man,
I don’t need you to
Live for me
Or die for me.
We both know that’s a lie.
I don’t need you to
Whisper sweet words
You don’t mean,
Or make promises
You’ll never keep.
I don’t need you to
Fill me or complete me.
Just be there
In honesty, no walls,
And let us talk
With open hearts
The way we know we can.
The way we did before.
And if you can’t do that
Well, we can just let it pass.

One thought on “In Truth

  1. What I find is that most of your stuff has the same voice and tone of my own, so I don’t know if I’m a fair critic because of that. I like your stuff a lot, but see the beginning of my note.

    I really like ‘i don’t need you to whisper sweet words to me you don’t mean’ damn, that is like a nasty blade in the middle of the work. Tasty.
