Day 3 - NaPoWriMo 2013- A Lie

Day 3 - NaPoWriMo 2013- A Lie

So, I said no challenges.  Ironically, yesterday’s challenge was to write about “a lie”.  As is drove home tonight this “little irony” found its way in ...

A lie
(Jaquith 2013)

A lie, is a lie, is a lie, is a lie ...

Your subtle omissions
The empty spaces in-between 
A simple testament
To darker reaches, places unseen

Delusion, collusion
Swept away by illusion
In the heat of passions lurks a hunger
A voracious emptiness, hard to contain

Lost in a rage of emotion
Choices need to be made
To believe again, rekindle my pride
Or slink away, victim to another's crime

Whiskey burns away the pain
Yet here I remain
No greater a man, only rounded at the edges
Wiser, addicted to a memory

This pain, it feeds me
With a self-indulgent indignation
It manifests a denial 
Gives me reprise

And yet,
Wouldn't I have done the same?
