The weapon

Truth is sometimes
Better left unsaid
Kept under lock and key
Like a lethal weapon

For a better moment
Will maybe come to use it
Against real enemies
Rather than an uncomfortable past

But you coldly spoke it
Sort of a make or break cure
Convinced that any heart
Can be healed by the obvious

Then my reason ran aground
Pushed by your merciless wind
So carefully stay, distant enough
Not to see my fatal wounds.

    The first verse spoke to me personally. I have done that. Deleted truths that had better be left unsaid. I’d like to think it’s a good decision.

      Truth is not a danger itself. People who think to hold it are. We shall always be smart and careful enough to challenge our truth before letting it out. Thus, I’m not surprised you did. Much love, HC

    “Then my reason ran aground”…I get what that feels like. Sometimes confronting things is just all to painful. Perhaps there is a time and place for everything and being confronted with something in the wrong way at the wrong time is not good for anyone.

      Sorry for the laconic answer, I was falling asleep (yes it was half past midnight here…). You are totally right. Telling the truth sometimes can be like kicking someone in the stomach while he’s already on his knees. If you love somebody, you better find the good moment and the good way for such “revelations”… Thank you for reading it and keep on posting your beautiful pictures! Cheers, HC

        That’s perfectly okay. I do the opposite; I respond in the morning before coffee and then later wonder why I wrote what I did. Finding a way and time so that the person can hear what is being said is key. I agree. Cheers, Chris

    Always a fine line between the whole truth and the truth people want to hear. This poem touches on a universal – well written.
