 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

geishacountrypoetpoetry759


stripped bare



 



I have been stripped bare of all I am



of all I ever wanted to be…



now I don’t know who I am



nor the person that others may see?



I have to rebuild each day



try to find the person I knew



I know deep inside he hides away



lost between lies and the truth.



The light of day just tears away



the foundations on which I depend



waiting for the fall



amid the crumbling walls



as the lies seek out their own end.



I believed that truth was strong



...could do no wrong



but the truth can be as bad as a lie…



when it breaks your heart



tears your life apart



leaving you lifeless and wanting to die.



Being stripped clean of all I am



has left an almost empty shell to rebuild



I must now fill my life and try again



and hope my life is fulfilled?
