The Truth

The truth comes to me

in waves

during a hurricane

of deceit and painful

half truths

based on half

lies of who

you really are

or what I truly am

which is naive to the

reality of your

existence as my lover

my soulmate

for you

are only

the truth

wearing the disguise

of a trick or treater

whose only goal

is to trick me,

not wanting to offer

a treat at all.

    • Thanks for taking the time to comment. I wrote this in ten minutes, no edits, after reading my 5th book about Sylvia Plath and was wondering how she must have felt when she was so betrayed by Mr, Hughes. If only she would have thrown him into the water for the sake of her sanity.


  1. No worries, I appreciated you taking the time. I highly suggest reading about her. Amazing poet and woman. She was sadly over shadowed by her husband, also a poet, Ted Hughes. She committed suicide(1953) and her son recently did the same. If you get a chance, check out her poetry.
