A Dose of Kyle

Writing by Kyle Freelander

Love Sludge

You choose to make me live a lie

when that is not a choice you are allowed

to make alone. I know you and I know

when you lie, when you cross lines

only to pretend you are innocent.

I gave you the chance to confess,

to put the pain of a lie touching

my “I love you”s to rest, but you continue

to play with me and my heart. I try

to move forward with you but lies

keep us tethered to the past, unresolved

and consequently bitter to the point

where three simple words become

so complicated, pouring out like wet sand

instead of sugar. I want us to move along,

to go forward, but I cannot be the one dragging

you through the sludge we’ve made

with every lie and secret and half-truth

that stole our honesty and our love.
