Lies of omission

grown in

the silence between

take on lives of their own

robbing from each

our secrets

stolen from the justified

and vulnerable,

borrowed on fear

until grown

bloated and taut, truth

springs unguarded from

lips fully

formed, as virulent

as a virus without

an antidote

yet, having the power

to heal the troubled

heart of a liar
