Naked Truth


So here it is, the naked truth

I met you too young, still in my youth

All the promises you made to me

Turned into explosive hypocrisy


Here I am and there you are

How did we make it this far?

Worlds apart, kids our only link

For we are divorced in black ink


How can you live with who you are?

For my part, I could no longer care

Until you hurt our flesh and blood

With the anger you vent in a flood


Controlling; as you see fit

But why? What’s the benefit?

Turn your “trust me, honestly”

To impurity with no integrity


You are a father, not a dad

And yes, that makes me sad

For broken vows you didn’t keep

I, for my part, can no longer weep


Can you not see what you’re doing?

Those precious lives that you’ve ruined

Your loss at the end of the day

For backs will turn and walk away

"Naked Truth" tells the story with deep feelings. I have learned from this poem.

From the gut. Gettin' it all said. Great rant.
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 5/31/2004
I married my ex when she was sixteen and I was twenty-one. We stayed together until the kids were pretty well grown up. Fortunately, she remains one of my best friends. People change. I'm not a big fan of the institution of "marriage." These verses of yours are very meaningful and go to the depth of my soul. Take care, Andrea. Love and peace to you. Regis

I, too, married too young, Andrea, and suffered a similar fate. I guess many of us have to live and learn. Now re-married to a true soulmate for the rest of my days hopefully.

Hope brighter days and new dreams find you soon.
