Burning Lies

in poetry •  2 months ago 

You looked at me intently,
Probing, discerning to see my core;
I panicked as I fumbled my key,
Scared that you might be able to see my soul.

What if I would let you in?
Would you be ready to see?
All these burning lies under my skin,
That flares-up with hostility to protect me.

You asked me if I’d fall in-love again,
I answered “I’m always in love—often in vain;
But I prefer holding my love in the darkness,
Afraid that I can’t let go—once I start this.

“Sometimes I think, I need a spare heart to feel all the things I feel.—S.K.”
