“The Truth”

 

He looked into

her eyes

trying to find

what she didn’t

want to tell

him

still unsure

if he really

wanted to know

what

she was hiding

behind the

green

and blue

looking back

at him,

he could be

made

to believe

anything

when she

looked

at him

that way

he wanted

her

words to be

true

more than she

cared

about her lies

being real

which in a

way

made them

even

more

believable,

he watched

as she took

five measured

strides

across the

room

looking over

her right

shoulder

as she made

her turn

giving him

just enough

of

a smile

and a gaze

to make him

forget

he had ever

even doubted

her

and if he

still did

he lied to

himself

and pretended

he forgot,

he didn’t really

want to know

the truth

he feels foolish

for even

questioning

her

standing up

for

truth

but then

hiding

from it’s

reality,

he wouldn’t

look

for it again

searching her

eyes

for some trace

of a lie

he didn’t really

want

an answer

to

he knew better

then treading on

fatal ground

he couldn’t lose

her

he just

couldn’t,

how important

is the truth

anyways…
