Deception

phpThumbphp-1Pretense is tempting
Truth dressed up in lies
Standard fare
Collapsing on itself
Like confetti
Tossed into the breeze
Flirting with eternity
But gone too soon
Easy to misunderstand
Taken for granted
In place of conscience
Waiting for a turn
That never comes
This commonplace sin
Set on edge
Invisible to see
Yet solid as stone
Half-truths blend together
Forming a bond
That keeps its own confidence
And wastes no tears.
