Dear Honesty

Not a thing has torn my heart more deeply and more destructively than honesty
No lie or pure deceit has harmed me like the truth
Oh, sincerity - how viciously you sting

I've poured all my wasted faith into this hope
That I might convince myself I'm fine

Why, oh why do you rob from me my lies
And force these untrue eyes to see?
Why, oh why must you open what I hide
And break the comfort I have let myself believe?
Oh, honesty
Oh, honesty

How the barbs of unadulterated fact have crushed my bones
And the purest lines kept me awake for days
Clarity is nothing half as beautiful as wandering, unaware,
Through what's really happening
