Day 42: honest

some nights
i am honest
but most i lie
tell myself
that she sleeps soundly with her head above her pillow
dreams of lillies
or peace
yes she dreams of peace
but i wonder
on honest nights
what was the scene in her last nightmare
was it my face
does she imagine a scene with my bear palms breaking through her chest
thinks that maybe one morning i woke up saying "today ill break a heart for breakfast"
i have broken the best thing that ever happened to me
and i no longer have the heart to fix it
this morning i tried so hard to lie
but honesty was plastered in my dreams
this morning i woke up whole
and never felt so horrible for it
im sorry. i haven't yet figured out the ending
