the best lies

April 5, 2018

the best lies are the most cleverly disguised

as truth…

 

‘beauty that will rot’

 

feed off your fears 

suck you dry

 

convince you all you’ve lost 

has extinguished your light

 

the most addicting lies would have you believe: all that you are is this infatuation 

you’ve been falling for 

far to long 

 

hiding in the dark corners of your mind

there they can grow

 

the thing about leeches 

…they can’t survive with out their host 

 and they will numb you in the places that they suck

so you don’t even know they are there

 

they don’t want you to remember 

 

the parasites are terrified to lose their source.

their blood.

 

and you are it.

 

 

 

its harder when you realize you’ve fallen victim to their promises…

their poison

why does it feel so good to keep going back for more 

more

more

 

?

 

the poison coated in thick, sweet, dripping honey 

it tastes so good 

spoonful after spoonful

 

…until it makes you sick sick sick

 

then the guilt 

the shame 

 

 

now you need more honey to anesthetize the feelings 

 

 

you’ve forgotten all over again

 

who you really are

 

 

 

you don’t need the honey to taste whats sweet

you don’t need their promises of beauty riches pleasure to feel alive 

 

 

however long the night may seem

the dawn always comes 

 

but you must remember to pull back the curtains 

even if you just let in a sliver of the sunshine

 

the darkness loses its power

 

the shadows must show their faces 

 

the roaches crawl back into their cracks

they cower in their own fear

 

they sense it…

you’ve found them

you’re tired of their pony tricks— you won’t be fooled again

they’re trembling now

 

you tear the shades off the windows 

let the light flood the room

 

now you race out the front door 

 

rays of warmth nourish your starving skin

your scars fade 

radiance seeps into your pores 

 

as you regain your strength 

you generate the radiance 

 

the lies you were steeped in can’t exist here 

you’ve become impenetrable 

when they look at you they can't stand themselves 

 

 

no choice but to shrink away

they won't be back again.

...

 

 

it hurts to much

 

 

you get that sparkle in your eyes back

your glow 

 

you become the lighthouse 

 

…don’t you ever stop shining 

someone needs you 

your return 

your return to yourself is a reminder

 

we can 

we WILL 

all find our luminescence again.  

 

 

 

infact— maybe you were born for this. 

 

 

 

imagine a world that glows

only light.
