Leaking you

Sometimes is it is the smallest detail The inconspicuous that gives it away The wrinkle at the corner of your eye The slight curl on your lip The altered tone in your voice You try to hold it in Keep the secret safe within But your body betrays you Leaking signs That contradict your conversation Some may overlook Others adept at perception Will notice each incongruence And turn it into an opportunity To better match their offering Consciously or unconsciously Morphing their responses To better suit your mood And receptivity With consumate ease The dance of persuasion A naked truth Your cues beyond words Leading your conclusion Unknowingly Unwittingly The silent clues you broadcast Responsible for your fate
