honest, i swear.

sometimes, all i can give is honesty.
i’ve only taken it away two
or three times, and the effects
are stronger than i can bear.

i never want to offer anything but the truth.
nobody said it was easy,
and i didn’t expect them to-
or it to be.

i didn’t know what to give and
when and what to hold back.
i guess one day i’ll learn.

can you teach me?
am i teachable?
can this be taught?

i guess we’ll all find out.
i’ve always thought there was more
to tired faces and lying eyes
than whatever is spoken,
with or without words.

i could shrug my shoulders
and move on, but then again,
at least i’m at least honest with myself.
