Caught in the Act

018 - Copy

I have never been good at pretending; the eyes tell what words won’t.

Body language betrays my desire to hide, to fake through the hurt and disenchantment—

and so

I beg to the sky for resolution,

the fix,

and if it does not come, and it won’t, there is no hope for change.  I am caught

in the act, on stage without a script or make-up,

soul naked,

heart naked,

tear stained with no make-believe, for I have never been good at pretending.

    Talk about an emotional poem! I think that your poem is an expression of courage.
