the truth will be

a fist to your face

a blow you could not have imagined

without first seeing for yourself

the blood

dripping down to pool

at your feet.

 

this blood had, only recently,

been inside you,

invisible and unremarkable.

so hidden, that

you were very surprised

when it burst out

and that you had a part in its creation,

existence,

and disgrace.
