Not a word was said of dignity
They removed that like a core.
The subjects we are speaking of
Don’t listen anymore.
They never told her she was unwanted
They simply left the room.
While she sat dangling from confusion
They carefully constructed her tomb.
Life rapes an atmosphere
That isn’t ready for what lies.
Sins embroiled in agony
Then we ignore the cries.
Hard times reveal morality
While good ones reveal the heart.
You can’t quite bite the apple in two
But you can sure tear that orange apart.
A city sits in ruins
A child is left to pout.
I bet I could make this a thousand verses
And you’d still not know what it was about.
The blankets you leave in your bed
The light you leave in your room.
The ceiling over your head
The ever waiting broom.
They never told her she was a lie
Or that she’d never find her love.
They told her she was a part of something
That came from high above.
They never told her she was a waste
You could see it in their eyes.
Of all the truths they ever told
They told a thousand lies.
