Secrets and Lies
A Secret Shared

A secret told to earnest ears
Striving to catch, each,
Whispered word
Eyes wide open in surprise
Breath - drawn in and held
To exhaled in a tumble
Of excitement
Through cupped hands
Shielding a receptive ear
And so it goes on
Until the secret
Is no more

Lies Told

Words flow like a waterfall
A tumbling tissue of lies
Spoken to ears, that only,
Hear what they want to hear
Gathering into pools,
In the subconscious mind
Overflowing into a,
River of thought
Clarity dawns
And the lies are,
Discovered, uncovered
And denounced
