I’m afraid of the truth

Not the all encompassing

Truth of that which is known

But your truth
The truth that could say

That like my looks your

Love for me has faded

Eroded by waves of time
The truth that could say

That the things that once

Endeared you to me are now

Noxious gas suffocating you
My quirkiness makes you cringe

My inadequacy with words, wearisome

My flaws magnified until they’re all you see

It’s not me, it’s not you, it’s us


I could be crazy

I often am

Your truth could

Be like mine
A truth that could say

That our years together

Have done nothing but

Make me love you more
A truth that could say

That I trust you and love

You more than I thought

I was capable of
Love that is all encompassing

Trust that reaches beyond doubt

Like air & water you sustain me

It’s not me, it’s not you, it’s us
