Truth? What Truth?

 

His words were intended to cut her down,

To make her miserable, and to make her frown.

 

His words were intended to kill her soul,

To make her shrivel, and be far from whole.

 

His words were intended to berate, and not soothe,

To her, he said ‘you are nothing; that is the truth’.

 

The truth?

 

She smiled, and then she laughed,

And realized all her errors and gaffes.

 

She said to him ‘The only truth that is here to stay,

Is that I should flee from you, and quickly walk away’.

 

‘I will rise and I will soar, for I have nothing to lose,

You obviously do not deserve me- and that is the real truth’.
