April 8, 2010 Prevarication

He looked me in the eye

then he lied to me

his lips never sneered

eyes never flashed.

But he lied.

Then I could see it –

the lie – just beneath

his skin, moving around,

as if it were some parasite

burrowing, becoming part of him.

And when he smiled

it almost disappeared.

When I said I love you

all I could hear was the lie,

chewing away inside him,

burrowing deeper.
