Treasure Island

Harriet James

Choosing torment?

After all the lies,
What am I to believe?
I followed only what
I wanted to see.
So now I just see
With my eyes,
Not what I read.

Deep inside,
I know our hearts
Do not lie.
Deep inside I know
He's playing
With his own mind,
And mine.

    Hearts are vulnerable and imperfect.
    Knowing one's own self is the greatest challenge.
    You expressed the conflict in a sharp and pointed way.

    love is the continual act of dying, and being reborn... of lies and truths, of sins and forgiveness, of falling down and getting back up... but, is it love? (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
