Corey

Truthfully

it 
hurts 
when ever I hear them
even 
if it’s the 
truth

its 
not that
the words are foreign 
to my ears 

its 
the fact that
feeling truly loved is

please… 

please 
be patient 
promise to use kid-gloves 
while managing to capture a heart 
that’s been closed from
misuse 

it 
seems
since you 
there’s a slight opening 
where there 
wasn’t

so…


know 

can 
get 
there 
because… 

want 
to
believe 
you love me
I just need more time
more time to absorb the possibility of 
those words being said 
truthfully 
after 
hearing them 
spoken for so long as lies 
simply to keep me holding on to empty dreams 
that led me here
stranded 
where 
I am alone 
and too afraid 
not to 
be

at the same time
