Face the Light

Without searching, the lie surfaced.
You cried all night
And dreaded the light.

Because he lied
Your life’s in disarray,
You seem to have lost your way.
Because he lied
You search all eyes,
Sifting truth from lies.
Because he lied
Your plans are scattered
As if they, and you, no longer mattered.

Because he lied
You contemplate leaving him behind.
For too long your love was blind.

For months he said it wasn’t so;
Meaning you kept on trying, continually denying
You lost your way long ago.

Truth or lies? From him you’ll never know.
You’re a pawn in a game
He can’t admit he’s playing; it has no name.
But she does. To all this she is not blind.
Dry your eyes, face the light. To yourself be kind
