Smothered but not out...

“Truth be
Told!” she cried.
“Can’t be
Said…” he mumbled.
Hands clasped firmly
Over his
Ears… “I
Don’t want to
Hear!”
“But you
Must!” she
Pleaded…
Grim faced with
Thunder-clap eyes;
He turned about and
Walked away…
Her shoulders
Slumped… With
Chin to
Chest…
Resigned at first to
Let go of her
Honesty and
Integrity… then
Realization finally
Dawned…
Truth is
Truth no matter whether
Spoken
Heard or
Not…

Smothered but not out...

Artist's Description

I woke with the 1st line resounding in my head and it wouldn’t go away…this is a little jot about the stifling of another’s truth …unfortunately one can not make another listen if they don’t want to… the key though is to keep your truth inspite of this
