Five Dull Knives

You see, there’s been a breach and it’s hard to reach that place inside of me that holds the trust that once was gained but now is hard to see…it’s not that I don’t love you because very much, I do, it’s just that I’ve come to understand that truth is hard for you.

I have really tried my honest best to teach ¬†you and all the rest, the lessons I have learned through this awful, grueling test, this test we call our lives…I know the truth is hard to tell but lies are worse than knives.

Even the dullest knife plunged into my skin is not a thing to imagine but I would rather five dull knives in my chest before one more lie from you again.
