A Beat Poem
Another slice, another burn, another scar
Something else to hurt and heal
A broken promise, broken faith, no more trust
Something else to steal
Why do we do this to ourselves?
Why do it to each other?
Claim love, carrying, devotion
These ruthless, raw less of emotion
When are they really felt?
It takes years to build trust truly
But the second someone goes away
We can't live without them, love them so much
In relationships, these lies are lethal
We say these words so freely and so readily accept
Yet so often they break
TRUST, FAITH, COMPASSION, HONESTY
Betrayal, disloyalty, lies
This is what modern relationships are billy upon
One side does it, the other accepts
Or does not see what us not wanted
Keep a blind eye and a happy heart
No, I say, do not accept this anymore.
Honest, open relationships are needed
Built on loving, trusting foundations.
Maybe it's just a pipe dream
But I will always strive for that dream
Or remain emotionless
The cold *****
We all know
