Yesterday's Fragile Truth
and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Betrayal has devastated your heart
blocking love’s magic before it could start.
And depression's quagmire entraps your soul
as disparaging lies exact their toll.
Chameleon clouds change to match your mood
releasing teardrops emotions have brewed.
And your heart breaks from the weight of the pain
as monsters hide in the thoughts of the sane.
A fickle sun no longer shares its light
sulking within shadows gathered by night.
And feigning feelings you struggle to cope
for counterfeit smiles leave no room for hope.
The specter of fear that penetrates dreams
fuels frightening bouts of silent screams.
And exiting the tunnel there’s no light
for the future’s foggy obscured by fright.
The promise of tomorrow made to youth
was written on yesterday’s fragile truth.
For happiness is a word without weight
it's simply a moment devoid of hate.
