What is a lie

To give hope,
Taking it away before it is truly enjoyed.

To speak ill words with a smile,
Taking but a little while to face the truth.

To bring moment of tenderness,
Summoning it towards its unknown resolution.

To bring excitement in a sentence,
Directing it before having time to take it back.

Wonderful qualities that a human being inhibits.
Why else can a lie survive to be used on another?

    Intresting perspective. A lie may in some cases be the ultimate truth and the most loving of gestures.

    The bad thing about a person that inhibits qualities, is that in a sense they are lying to themselves as well. Nice poem.
