i asked for 
the truth, 
thinking that it'd 
be like water 
to my parched heart.
 
but darling, 
i never knew 
that you were harbouring 
a devastating flood.

    The comparison of truth to water is a truly perceptive concept. Despite this poem's shortness, it speaks such truth. I would say that this deserves to be published for the entire world to see (as in published in a book of poetry).

    Yes. A lovely truth about telling the truth; this is perfect, and so applicable to many things. I’m really loving the short poem style you have going; the format really adds to the short and sweet aspect of your pieces. Beautiful work <3
