Holding on

1 min readSep 17, 2020

This soul holds on secrets,

Secrets that are lies.

This soul holds on pain and scars,

Scars that are lies.

This soul holds on fear, the fear of being loved,

The fear which is a lie.

This soul holds on burdens,

Shackles that are burdens,

Burdens that are lies.

This soul holds on to what’s gone,

What’s gone is a lie.

This soul holds on to a talker,

A talker who is a liar.

This soul holds on fire,

A fire that is extinguished.

This soul holds on angels,

Angels that are lies.

This soul holds on love,

A love that is a lie,

Because this soul is a lie
