Bad Faith

He says he's sorry.
But he doesn't believe it.
She says she still loves him.
She knows that ain't the truth.

Both are locked together
In their mutual bad faith.
No truth is in their shared space.
He hates her for his being with her.
She hates him for never showing his love.
Neither can face the truth for themselves.
Neither can face the truth in themselves.

This is living in bad faith.
Being for oneself only.
Never Being there for others.
What a great waste.
But the greatest sin,
Are the lies they tell themselves.
About themselves they are in delusion.
Weaving their lies all around someone else.

Neither are their true selves.
Neither really knows what they want.
So they blame one another.
So they hurt each other.
With their respective inauthenticity.
They languish in the web they've weaved.
And with every word they deceive themselves more.
More than hurting the other.
They are living in bad faith.

Bad faith.
Like the blood seeping for her eyes.
They never know
When they, to themselves, they lie.
They always deny to themselves.
The truth when it faces them.
Truth, they simply push it away.
Preferring the self deception
Of living in bad faith.

His Love for Her

Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say? Who was it that carried me on the bier? Well, will you pray for me? Or can't you wait to see another man, if only you can?  Life with you was never,  the kind I wanted.  You called me "friend" That was after you put an end to our coupling. That was after you had my ring  cut off your finger. I can hear you singing after that. You had your own definition for being a swinger. A woman, free and unattached. Since then we've never been intimate. No matter the many times I had to wait. You would love me  Only by cleaning and laundrying for me. Still you'd never give me a bath. We had a life together you never let last. Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say?     "She buried him, with his love for her.      She's not so demur."  _________ copyright ©️ 2023 SDKilmer, LLC All Rights Reserved www SDKi

Adoptee Chameleon

I love the way you move. All swank and cool. I'm a dank fool canvas. I'd like to be you. Let's see who, I can be. I love the way you speak. All soft and sexy. Everything 'bout you is neat.

From which they saved me. What bald liars! They took me on. An adoptee chameleon. Gill or Jillian? No one could tell. All adoptees seem to be a chameleon. How I love your body. Oh how I love your manners. Does it really matter That I want to be like you? Got nothing else to inform me. So let's see, who I am. If I can break free from Being an Adoptee Chameleon Of different colors. With different lovers. To
