the end

I wake up one day and suddenly I know:

There are lies.

Deceptions.

Omissions.

Hidden things unspoken.

Don’t think I can’t see them.

Each one twists into my gut.

Sharp.

Deep.

Cutting.

Don’t think I can’t feel them.

For years,

I swallow my pain,

Suppress my rage,

Choke down my bitterness.

Until

I cannot eat.

I cannot sleep.

I waste away,

Anxiety gnaws at my sanity

Truth and sweaty fear blur into

Betrayal, beating fast in my rib cage.

I wake up one day and suddenly I leave.
