Truth Or Lies?

You ask me for the truth,
Which one is that my love,
The one that breaks your heart,
Or the one that kills mine,

I have veiled you,
From the world of demons and demi-gods,
From the users and abusers,
I was their puppet,
To save you,

They craved the ruination of you,
Howling for your demise,
So I suffered their onslaught,
Of taunts and torture,

While I smiled,
As you placed wild flowers in your hair,
Bathing in the afternoon sun,
Dreaming beyond the clouds,
Of our life together,

So you ask me for the truth,
Which one is that my love,
The one that breaks your heart,
Or the one that kills mine.

is that you find yourself wondering if you have wasted your time, with someone who will never know what you have given up for them. One who would be devastated by your thoughts and wondering, the consideration of maybe you could have done better? You already know you would be worse off; without this person you would never be the person you are today.
That's my take anyway. I like it for the deep thought about... Why, what if? ~ Geezer.

There is value to commenting and critique, tell us how you feel about our work.
This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place.

Good guess! Thx :)

For me this sounds like a conversation of the internal type. I’m imagining someone rolling these thoughts around hypothetically. Maybe trying to filter the rights words and gain resolve to breach the topic in actuality.

Obviously the opening/ closing stanza is the theme. The middle section really flows. Connecting the two.


That's definitely a good way of looking at it. :)
