Through the Looking Glass

I am not going away,
I am staying right where I am
I keep my feet on the ground,
I am glancing at you-there is no sound
We are struggling to keep our eyes wide open,
but still ,
we are unable to see
beyond the blurry faces of the past
Some people claim
that truth is cruel,it brings us nothing but pain
But they do not know,
what hurts the most
They lie
to me
to you
to themselves
Then,is the moment
you realise
that all this time you were gazing at a distorted image of reality
The truth was hiding underneath
Now ,you are holding my hands
You are looking at me
and I can see that you are well aware of
the only way to unveil the truth
Truth was right before your eyes ,all this time
What you consider as Truth
is what I know as Bliss ...


  1. Truth..such a weid thing..the easiest and simultaneously the most difficult to cope with..It's always before our eyes but we never seem to realise it on time..And when truth is your own bliss then it's just great..But when truth confirms your nightmares it's not..Well,it's doesn't matter now that you can already have your dream come true..!

    I'm lost for words..for one more time!! :))

  2. You are partly right,Ανέμη!
    Truth may be hard to cope with sometimes...
    it may be hard to accept.
    But I don't think it is as cruel as you might think.Lies are much worse,they hurt you when you think that they are not.Just like drugs,whice seem to ease someone's pain,to make someone feel better,when they are gradually killing him.
    That is why I prefer Truth.It can be bitter and it might hurt,but only for a while.Because Truth is rationality.It is not bad,or harmful just shocking,certain times.That is what makes truth really painful,the shock it can give to us.
    But other than that,truth might be happiness.Imagine someone's happiness hiding beneath a truth he was afraid to look at straight-forward.
    Never avoid the truth,
    because the pain it might give us sometimes
    can be a step closer to our personal Bliss...

    I love you Ανέμη!
