garden of lies

! Quite Contrary

Folder: 
Its not beautiful

 

Truth conspires to unravel all my careful planting

in my garden of deception 
every blossom screams your name, 
every stone trips a hazard in your honor 
the brooke whispers your name incessantly 
your truth dances on the edges of my lips,
so desperately close to leaping into the world as an earth shattering revelation! 
no thorns or barbs dare grow,
the sunlight streams though illuminating your presence 
there is no hiding from you 
I crave to sing the song of truth in my heart 
dance the deepest confessions to light 
cut down every twisted vine tangled up in my web of lies 
I crave, I pine, I anguish 
yet I tarry, 
frozen in time the shell only recognizes obligation 
thankful for your warmth 
I move on and tend the garden 
as if you never existed 
cockle shells in a row,
only they know.

 

 

 

Truth conspires to unravel all my careful planting in my garden of interpretation 

every blossom screams your name every stone trips a hazard in your honor 

the brooke whispers your name incessantly your truth dances on the edges of my lips so desperately close to leaping into the world as an earth shattering revelation 

no thorns or barbs dare grow

the sunlight streams though illuminating your presence 

there's no hiding from you 

I crave to sing the song of truth in my heart 

dance the confessions to light 

cut down every twisted vine tangled up in a web of lies 

I crave, I pine I anguish 

yet I tarry, 

frozen in time the shell only recognizes obligation 

thankful for your warmth 

I move on and tend the garden 

as if you never existed 

cockle shells in a row only they know.
