Truth or Denial

Your words
The tightness
In your eyes
Your earnestness
Break my heart
As I struggle to believe
What they tell me
Yet deep in my soul
I cannot

Your words
Float out of your mouth
Disturb the air between us
If I believe them
Absorb them
My chest aches
With empty despair

I see you struggling
To believe them too
Strain takes your face
In incredulity
As sound leaves your lips
