The Liar

The first white lie
Falls from her lips.
The first strand of deceit
Like a spiders silken thread,
The web of deception begins to formulate.
One lie leads to another.
Each time she finds it easier,
Believing in her story
And the web evolves.
Each lie creates another filament.
The web getting larger
As the lies grow.
Eventually she traps herself
In her own illusion 
The ending is bitter.

Very nicely inked, Elizabeth. Lies, whether told to conceal or to hurt, never end well.

Cannot understand the point of lying. Lies always get found out eventually.

So very true Elizabeth. I was always told it is better to tell the truth because it is easier to remember the truth. Nicely done

Thanks Victor. I can't understand why people choose to lie, the painful truth is always better to hear than a comforting lie.

Eventually lies will catch up the liars with a bitter ending. Very well penned, Elizabeth. T.J

This poem should be retitled, "The Donald Trump Story." Well done!
