If The Truth Could Talk

If the truth could talk

It would be mortifying.

 

It would say

Why doesn’t he validate you

The way you want him to?

Why can’t you find this validation from within?

 

It would say things like

How are you a feminist

when you fuck up so spectacularly?

Aren’t you supposed to be better?

 

It would say

Does an opportunity

At the visceral expense of another

Make it worth it?

 

It would say things like

Who are you?

Are you sure you are who you think you are?

Is this all a façade?

Is this a game you play?

 

It would say

Are you merely trying to make yourself feel better

about who truly you are?

Are you genuinely genuine?

Or do you merely preach

what you cannot accomplish

in and of yourself?

 

It would say things like

Do you feel good about yourself?

Do you actually value who you are?

Are you tricking yourself into thinking you do?

Does faking it ‘til you make it work?

 

It would say things like

You feel devoid of true human companionship

In the face of so much of it.

 

It would say things like

Are you the means or the end?

 

It would say things like

You are lonely.

 

It would say things like

You feel like a failure for your loneliness.

 

It would say things like

Do you feel that loneliness too?

 

It would say things like

If you do, why don’t you tell me?

 

It would say things like

Why can’t we just all be honest with one another?

 

It would say things like

Why is that so scary?

 

It would say

You are a constant contradiction.

A façade.

A sham.

A fraud.

 

It would say

Make me feel valid.

Make me feel worthy.

Make me feel loved.

 

It would say

But you are brilliant.

But you take initiative.

But you are beautiful.

But you are worthy.

 

It would say

Who are you anyway?

 

I would say

The truth.
