Untrue

Is a lie

not a lie

When it’s something you hide?

Something you choose to not say

You choose not to confide

Is a lie

not a lie

If it holds a little bit of truth?

If half the story is correct

The other – a little loose

Is a lie

not a lie

Because you say it with a smile

Because you look me in the eye

Holding my hand all the while

Is a lie

not a lie

If you feign forgetfulness

You claim ignorance

But it still happened nonetheless

Is a lie

not a lie

When you brush over the details

When you go off on a tangent

When you try to derail

Me.

You think I can’t see

But I do

Oh you,

You are

Untrue.
