Lies Can Bruise

Lies can bruise
When said aloud
Lies to oneself
Have the propensity to kill
If kept locked in one's heart
The dichotomy of truth
Is one of Life's painful ideals
I will never fully comprehend
How I can deny my soul peace
For the happiness of others
Settling for pebbles
While I secretly wish
To be worthy of pearls
A secret
Suspected by many
Known by few
Can hardly be called a secret
And yet
My soul is beaten
Into unwilling submission
As I break the fragile wings of my heart
Telling myself
I am unworthy
Of such an angel's love
