The Truth

Is it the line defining reality and fiction?
Or a taunting reminder of the past’s ghosts?
Skeletons hidden to perfection
Until the dwindling smell brightens the lights 
And the then shadows the now. 
A fact that many dare not speak,
But tong it to amuse the ear.
As blissful ignorance draws a veil 
And jealousy whispers its tenacious tunes
A truth as absolute as the desert dunes 
Has tumbled and left its pungent ways
Exposed for the fiction it truly is.
The truth, forever seeking light.

    The truth is sought, but is it found? A poets words surely expound. Life's meaning in poetic meter. Behind the masks lives the cheater. The winds of change can rearrange. And leave you feeling very strange. What you once thought was absolute. You find, your not sure it's the truth.
