HONESTY BEGGED AN ANSWER

The_masqueradeby E.P. Robles20 Jul 2014

HONESTY begged an answer
from me it asked impossibility
forgetting my place within time
I spoke the truth -- almost benign
Thunder split the world within
first a crack then a fissure
Old souls cried a sorrowful song
and blood drenched the lids of eyes
Knowing truth as some may say
is keener than a sharpened blade
Sometimes best to hear -- a wind
than feel the storm of emotional pain
