what is it about our tangled lies

of pledges and declarations of love

that take all the good out of everything?

because we all project our ideals

on the mirrors of the faces of our beloved others

rather than truly see ourselves there?

because we're hungry and frightened

ignorance and vicious beyond measure

to protect our insignificant egos?

I'd rather do without love

but that isn't possible since in our Oneness

as creatures of some sacred promise

we all share the burden of enduring hard truth

while defining ourselves in our falsity?
