Dishonest Love

I work so hard

to be real…

truthful…

honest…

 

But…

 

In reality it

is too hard

at times to do

 

To be absolutely

Honest…

Truthful…

sometimes is

to hurt those

we love

damage them

 

I’m not talking

about lying to them

But…

just keeping things…

painful things…

hurtful things…

shielded from these

sensitive people

 

That is the life

of some … to

take all the

hurt…

the pain…

the unpleasantness

of the world

and …

shield those who

are not strong

 

That kind of

dishonesty is a

strange form

of Love…
