The Truths Between
Chew of tongue and squint of eye
Clicks of jaw and twitch of cheek
These lies drip from every pore
and stain the truths between.
Swift of thought and fleet of foot
Turn of phrase and doublespeak
The lies that tear the words apart
and split the truths between.
The accusations in the silence
The devil the detail's in
A once true fact so weathered now
It lets the truth seep in.
Unsaid. Unfathomed. Unspoken.
The things that fall between their words
Heaven sent to you and me
Delivered from their masks of grace
That mask the truths between.
