the lies
from your
imperfect mouth
they stumble
and crumble
falling all the way
leaving a trail
of broken words
to lay on
the ground
for another
to fall upon

But not me
I no longer
take that path
I’ve chosen
another way

  1. Ah, this is putting it out there, CC. Love the concrete form of -one by one’ and the liar’s path is a twisted trail that leads to no where. It is wise to alter course and choose your own path. Beautiful poetry!
