A lie

As you stand stripped before me
Proclaim this is all I’ll get
This is all of you
I can’t seem to rid
The urge to call your bluff
Scream
You’re a liar
Your soul isn’t naked
Your heart isn’t bare

I’ve given myself to you
In one piece
Every single fragment
Still I sit in front of you
You, a liar
Fully clothed
Heart caged

I remain
I nod
Yes, this is all of you
Yes, I see your soul
Yes, your heart is beautiful
All in hope
A lie will wither.

    I like that last line-a lie will wither.
    As opposed to the full bloom of truth 🙂
