Lies Believed

Did you know the truth?
Do you even know it now?
How could you hold it against me?
When I didn’t know anything
Even now I only have your words
Nothing to cling to, no life raft
Not that I care to save myself
Just to know what and why
In search of simple understanding
Something to wrap my head around
Now I drift in murky waters
Unsure and confused
I haven’t yet learned to listen
With the senses and nerves
Of my gut
So I judge and weigh the words
Only by what my ears hear
Not how the words make me feel
And now my heart is punctured
Bleeding a small stream
Slowly losing my energy of life
Left dull and in disbelief
A shell of a person
Untrusting and hurt
Shut off from people
Locked away in a bubble
Because I got it wrong
I was lied to
