Blood And Anxiety- The Truth


No! I cried

But you reached

And plucked a lie

from your own mouth

Placed it on my heart

I felt it tear, burn

And as I reeled in pain

I saw you turn your back

Was this real?

Was this you?

With my back on the wall

I begged you

But you only covered your face in shame

My heart knew then something it had never know before

The truth of a lie

-The Wasp

This September The InkOwl is teaming up with a guest poet The Wasp to bring you a mix of Blood and Anxiety. These poems were inspired by life events, personal experiences, and a desire to share differing perspectives on relationships. If you’re interested in participating in future corroborations with The InkOwl please feel free to message this blog from the contact page.
