Sarrah's Words

Truth is what is known, that does not need defining. It is as simple as a smile. One only needs to recognize it. Once set into words, once defined, it is no longer simple, it becomes something we must explore, argue and rationalize


I have had a taste of glory
of true happiness and balance
inner harmony
A taste of who I can be.

A darkness, a sadness so familiar
I lay my head upon it for rest
I tug it around me when I fear
This lethargy sapping my lifetime
away from me.

It is not about functioning.

It is about affecting, positively
rather than
assimilating the sarcasm
                        the false empathy
                        the egoism
                        the gossip

Before my life escapes me.

Your tear puts a calming hand on
my unsheathed sword

A steel beauty I cling to
forged in the heat of betrayal and loss and lies

The justice with which I have wielded my words
The anger fuelling itself
A fire fed by ungrounded fear

When I fight with my full might
I can tear your whole personality apart
and in my mind

precise and complex words
yet you stay silent – not taking the bait

You deserve better than this war

Your tear as you watch me claw at the seams of us
searching for the reason you will leave

Your tear

and I remember
war is not a part of love
