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

Cameo
