Broken shards of iron glass,
Litter the floor and contrast.

Black and white, the truth I see,
Yet the break is killing me.

That was my love, so strong and bold.
Now it sleeps in dungeons cold.

I do not want to believe,
For what I had did relieve.

The pain is back, in bouts again,
So I take up this boring pen.

To tell you how I dealt with the facts,
A miserably clear path of tracks.

Agh, not many people have commented on this yet??? :( I find that sad. :( I hope more people will comment on it soon. :) Because you deserve it. Your poem is powerful, and I can connect to it a lot. And you're right, the truth does hurts. But I think 'tis be much better to be hurt by the truth, than to be comforted with a lie. I don't know. Haha, sorry it maybe just me. But as tempting as the lie is, I think the truth's better despite the pain. But pain doesn't last forever, and it never will unless you let it or try to make it stay. Pain ends. Haha, this might be rather stupid or weird, but I want to share this acronym with you. HOPE = Hold On Pain Ends. :) You are a awesome friend and person, Liv.Harris. Thank you so much, for sharing this. :)
