The Heart of Truth

Poetry By: solafidas

words for reading:)
wake up slowly and find that your heart loves true truth. Lies and discord sown with truth find light to be a strange and unwanted illumination of dishonesty; Seen honestly as a smile in the dark, but the sun shows clearly as a black gift in the light, an ape upon your back, a sleepy pillow for your mind.

A pillow fitting comfortable
Snug around your head
Keeping you
From ever leaving bed
But a headache brewing
This is not as things should be

You cannot stay amongst the pillows
In another fellows sea

Out from in the clouds of sleep
My dear you must escape
Continue on your journey
Of this ever growing wake

Floating down the river
Of the minds elusive eye
These boats we ride
So full of empty
Suffocating lies

Inside each seed
Of fabricated
Disillusioned song
Is a heart of love
born yearning
The wait it may be long
But oh
For a chance to sing
A chance to soar
And to belong

To discover undiscovered
Deep discarded truth
Left behind in wanton lust
Betrayals of our youth

As we drop the anchor plashes
A knife to cut the bind
And the air we breath is cleaner knowing
We have left them all behind
