A Lie

It’s the subtle fragrance of a lie, 

that permeates the room.

It’s something you’re not saying, 

I think you stopped to soon.

 So I ask you clearly is that it,

you’re nodding like a dog.

I feel a little bit uncomfortable, 

that you had to swear to god.

The subtle fragrance of the lie, 

now lingers here between us.

I have to take you at your word, 

as I don’t like to make a fuss.

But there’s something in the air, 

and I just have to work it out.

As what stands between us now, 

is a fog that’s thick with doubt.



Daily Prompt – Open

It isn’t any wonder, that I listen with contempt

I never really have much time for those who will pretend

I see right through the fairy tales, I know that they are lies

Just tell it straight, don’t hold it back, its fibs that I despise

How ever hard the words appear just say them as they are

Open, frank and honest please and we’ll go very far
