honesty

the thing is
we can’t ever be honest
it is pure
too much for the world to handle
for it isn’t power
but weakness
it breaks through
like chattered light 
blinding 
it can’t be handled
we can’t be honest
the truth will forever remain 
in darkness
deep beneath the burrows 
of the heart
where none may see
until you let them 
in
and the truth spills through
you become there’s 
forever
even after the vessel
has broken
and they’ve left
the truth in their eyes 
you now weak
hollow
i rather lie
and avoid
the inevitable
