"The Key To Honesty"

As our days turn into weeks,
I feel you letting go.
Our love is something ugly now,
There's something you should know.

I never told you honest truths,
I couldn't open up.
I've spent my life preparing now,
Preparing for the worst.

So take this as a crucial step,
I really feel it is.
I'm taking all my borders down,
To bring you where I live.

Home to where my heart must stay,
Locked behind these bars.
So here's the key to honesty,
To something I call "ours".

A slip of paper lines the cage,
And occupies my mind.
You turn the key and pick it up,
"I feel so left behind".

Tell me what this means to you,
I'm sure you'll never guess.
You built yourself on grounds of trust,
They said it's for the best.

So take my hand and touch your face,
Pretend you never knew.
And i'll pretend to sympathize,
We both know that we're through.

Then smile for all the cameras, dear
And think of something pretty.
And i'll be sure to laugh out loud,
When you tell me that you love me.

    General CommentSo many truths spoken, believed they were a lie. Bitterness my enemy when I think I'm gonna die. If one believed the honest truth, they'd be on their knees praying that God would hear their cries. Their is no need to sympathize when their nothing left. Just remember all the times I loved you for your best.
