The Lie

Such a little thing Strung between two hearts Concealed in silence That which is unknown cannot hurt Not both at least Just one heart stricken It will not stay silent It will be heard Then two hearts broken Scars heal But never disappear They just conceal the wound

    Life cannot exist without some prevarications. Do you think used car salesmen and politicians could make their respective livings if they only told the truth? Good write, Bob.

    I love how you personified the lie in the 3rd verse "it will not stay silent". so true. and i love your ending - a great description of scars. they really do become a part of us.

    Aptly writ. The sociopath has no scars; has no wounds. He just scars others.
