Discerning Deception

Discerning Deception 

Intuition and scrutiny, everything you need 
Just read the following, if your sure you want to see 

They're saying yes, while their head shakes no
Their hands are often moving around their face and throats 

If they shrug their shoulders only one goes up
The words they like to use are except and but

Their body language doesn't match the words
They often face sideways, not forwards

They give way too many unnecessary details 
Their feet are moving, their fidgeting with their nails 

Their breathing is rapid, hands behind their backs
Their mouth is dry, their voices crack

They never touch there palms to their chests
They avoid eye contact, may look up to the left

Their mouth does all the expressing 
The rest of the face is stiff and repressive 

They want to make their bodies small
Time between answers, lots of ums and ahs 

There is redness in their cheeks
Leave out pronouns when they speak

It's a lot to observe and not all people are the same 
It could be fun in a poker game !
