The Truth About Lies

The truth about lies as we all know
Is they take us to a place so low
That place you hoped you'd never go
Where what we become, we dare not show

Where words are enemies unknown
They kill with no intention shown
Lies, bruise deeper than any stone
Always, at our hearts directly thrown

Trust becomes something that we fear
When too close to believing we get near
Lies like music, flow from mouth to ear
But much easier to tell, than to hear

Lies take our needing others away
You find yourself questioning everything they say
Afraid if you go down again, you'll stay
The truth about lies, they cause life's decay

    Such a clever title. And the line much easier to tell than to hear. Very inciteful. I'm glad you commented on my poem. It's nice to discover someone new.
