Lies,

The deadliest weapon.

The cause of broken hearts, of shattered lives.

They tumble from lips like snakes,

They scuttle over people, like spiders.

 

An unfaithful husband,lying to a wife,

Concealing the passionate encounters with a lover.

The smooth words of a killer, assuring no harm will come to

you,

Behind his back, he clenches a silver knife.

 

Lies.

So easy to tell, so hard to stop.

Weaving intricate webs of deceit.

Words smother lives like fog and

Tendrils cling to hearts.
