the moment

smile, I was gone
sparkle in the eye, I had died
glimmer of hope snatched from deep within me
just let me be
do not deceive me with your words
nor deceive me with your actions
do not lie with your energy
just leave me broken and shattered
on the bathroom floor
have courage to speak the truth
speak your truth
rise above being like other men
in the moment you can be forgiven
or you can be forgotten
you decide
