"Presence" by Joe DiMino

Truth needs no introduction;
While falsehood
The orchestration
Of a host
Of preliminary lies—

Relating to love,
The only validation required
Is its presence—
And if absent,
We may shy from truth
Entertaining a host
Of lies
Attempting to protect
The heart—
Ah…but presence…
What to do
With presence?
An unrelenting abscess
Of loneliness
The voids….
