A Poem by Jennesis


All the fun can't hide 

What you're like inside 

It's all there 

Under all that hair

The ugly truth lives to tell 

I've seen it well 

Lies spit like poison 

Tarnish the connection 

Trust crumbles 

Relationship fumbles

And we are left 

In debt 

I am worthy 

Of your honesty

Believing in yourself is tough~

Knowing you're good enough 

Are not skills you possess 

Your life is a mess 

This is your hole to dig out of 

It's not enough just to love 

Lies are expensive, you see 

Relationships die without honesty

Thank you so much.
So many truths here, and written so very well. I've never understood the serious liars, why they do it and how they live with themselves. Relationships without honesty certainly do die and often cause collateral damage, too. I enjoyed this well-penned writing.

Thanks so much Samuel. It's fascinating how much the lies do the opposite of what they are intende.. read more
This veers from tirade into the wit. The wit of experience and the dealing with trauma. In that it is excellently well written.

Thanks Ken~
i have been in relationships where we professed to live on honesty...but sooner or later, the secrets kept....and they fester...the truth hides until the truth becomes the end of the "us."
