Honesty

Honesty

A Poem by Jennesis

Honesty


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

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.

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."
