To Tell the Truth

To tell the truth,
Sometimes the truth
Can be disguised
With little lies

A little wink
A casual shrug
The truth just brushed
Beneath the rug

Instead of truth
You choose to share
Some sly deception
Here and there

A clever whim
A beaming grin
Meant to hide
The pain inside

And carried there
For years and years
Until one day
The truth appears

And you awake
To a surprise
A mass of little
Little lies

But now the task
Is to unmask
To all around
The truth you found

Unspinning tales
Unweaving webs
Un-misleading
Those mislead

Unconversing
Conversations
Undenying
Accusations

Years of hiding
To be vented
So much truth
Misrepresented

Disconcerting
Quite allerting
Quite distubing
Quite pertubing
Quite confusing
This diffusing

Unravelling lies
You told in youth
Is quite the pits,
To tell the truth

When faced with a cacaphony of little lies,
measure, again, the size.
No such thing as little ones ...
when spewed forth on a tongue that lies.
Welcome to the 'pits', Elizabeth.
You are a darned nice addition to this forum.

Marge, thank you for the poem. I'm going to send you a crimson rose, for all the love you have in your heart. One day it will appear in Passions

Sy, Can't believe you said that! Here I am among all these educated poets. The only book I know about is the book of life. Thanks for the kind words.I'll be reading your music.
Elizabeth
