Truth Be Told

Written by: Ashley Plotczyk

An empty face
Eyes to see 
That her heart 
Belongs to me 

Numb from pain
tucked away deep
unlit in the presence 
of me 

Can a smile be born 
can a truth be told
even as faint as a whisper 
I need to know 

By her side, i stay 
hand held out
emotions raw 
eyes to see 
that her heart belongs to me
