Truth To Be Told

Allison Grayhurst


Truth To Be Told



With this weight

clinging to my laughter,

cold weight of you

and your indifferent love,

shadows drag by my side

draining my spine of its thick marrow.


And you, on the phone, with neither

peace nor passion in your voice,

may as well tell me

you are regretting the days

once with me, have decided

to remain newborn on the crust

of some exclusive adventure, in foreign

cities, on unexpected streets, stay,

swimming in immediacy where the miracles

are yours alone to claim and keep

and the remembrance of my smile

has no effect.
