Truth Hurts?

Pushing beyond boundaries…Copy Right ©Hannah Gosselin 7/4/12

~

It’s always the guttural grounds,

grounds, they’re mired and thick,

thick-lipped your tongue slips

slips spilling words you’ll regret.

Regret is tangible, heavy in the air

air that has been tried and bitten;

bitten with the bitter pill of honesty,

honesty that will gain common ground.

Ground that is not tainted with lies,

lies that’re secretly silted, poorly hidden;

hidden in plain sight on your falling face.
