There are truths hidden in the most arbitrary of places

Like on the tip of your shoes, written in bold font, magenta

Saying you shouldn’t feel so ashamed of the things

That everybody does sometimes, there are horrible truths

Impossible to swallow, like those hanging on the ceiling

Of your mouth, navy blue italics saying I don’t love you anymore

Feels like maybe I just never did, there are awful truths written

Right across the surgeons faces, they never seem 

To conceive them at all, black all caps saying You are screwed, my boy, 

Did you happen to think life is a game?
