being honest

being honest

if I were the least bit
I would lie to you
tell you everything
is going to be okay
that we will get through this
you and me
that one day we’ll look back
and laugh at how silly it was
for us to worry
I would tell you this
and more because
it’s what you need
to hear most right now
i’m not honest, not one bit
the truth of the matter
not that it matters
is that I’m terrified
this might not end well
for you, for us…
we just don’t need dishonesty
when we’re hanging by a thread


NaPoWriMo2023 Challenge Day Sixteen: Today’s prompt is a poem of negation – yes (or maybe, no), I challenge you to write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like.
