Slippery Truth

25 01 2012

Whisper, whisper in the dark

Poison arrows hit their mark

Shredding me up inside

Soul debris in constant collide

The chance to know starts to entice

Thirst for knowledge, such a vice

That slippery gray truth it will

My soul and sanity slowly kill

Like an addicted cat I want to know

That thing that taunts my eyes to and fro

Don’t tempt me, damn curiosity

The end to this torture I cannot see

It’s pure masochism, I suppose

This desire for a truth that nobody knows

Whisper the beauty of making the future
Whisper the beauty of shaping the truth
You are the secret the world should discover
Truth is a flower that blossoms in you

A lovely and dark verse. Beautifully done!

Thank you, it would seem that truth is a shape-shifter, many things to many people

Andrea, this is beautiful, in a dark way, as VW wrote and I see that your sweet sixteen is coming up..I can’t believe you’re only fifteen; so very talented! And…your bday is the same as my hubby’s; a wonderful day, it is! 🙂

This is beauty.

**Shredding me up inside

Soul debris in constant collide**

Seem much more mature than your tender years…

I generally attribute it to the fact that I am an only child raised by a single parent, but it could be because I read so very much. I am just my age in other areas though, or maybe less.
