    In Truth

    Sarah Lewis explores love and truth in this short but powerful poem.

    Everything I told you

    Came out untrue

    But somehow 

    You already knew

    Because I’d been your crushed

    And purple bruise

    (To fold and form 

    And use)

    But the only one

    To ever know

    The still-there star 

    Of every show

    And I your faithful
