The truth is, I never trusted you. Mercurial creature, shape-shifter, appeaser, provocateur (just for the sake of it), for your sake, not for the sake of the receiver. Most adept at playing “truth”, the only truth is that I never trusted you. The gut doesn’t lie. I know it now like I never have before. The gut knows. The brain in my gut is the smartest one I have. I will not apologize for my softness, for the times I kept quiet. I was guarding my gut, my guts, my heart, my everything. I am done with this “you are broken”. I am done with your self-absorbed, self-hatred, afraid to actually be free, preaching and lying and cheating and drugging and you are a sham. You are a fake.
