Tell me Which is You?


  • JonTalbain
  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?

Tell me Which is You?



In the bitter, wintry winds you stand

Claiming that the pain I inflicted crumbled walls, made them fall

That I left the plains barren, full of chaff and refuse

Yet I have to ask, so many faces you wear, so which one is you?


Led by passion, spurred onward with desire, I came to want you

By what you say, by words that were sweet like honey

And empty like a fresh tomb

I fell headlong like Judas, the entrails of my heart spilt on the ground like the blood of the sacrifice

Yet I found nothing for all that it was worth.

I hung like a Roman Criminal, left to die and to rot and for all to see

Wanting nothing more than Love

Forced to move on, and sorry that I changed seasons without informing you

But with so many faces you wear, I don’t know which is you


Substantial, I stood as my name dragged through tears and much

Muck and pain

Could I bear my soul to be tyrannized by a lovely vixen

Who I could never be sure truly loved me?

Then bury me now in hopes of resurrection, for surely I have more faith in death of romance than the life of pain

Clarity, not blind faith, led me away

And all I could think of

Was which face I would see next?


Tell me, that you wear so many faces, so which one is yours?

HELLO, I misses your work...It took me a long time to view your work...But I am glad I did, as always your pain lends such great will always be my favorite poet...ssshhhh dont tell the others lol

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
