Liar

This entry was posted up for Write Up Cafe. If you enjoy poetry, short stories, and other creative pieces, you should check this blog out.

How long are your words
The size of a hand breadth
Stretching long like the horizon
On the coldest of sunsets
Sweetened in cinnamon
Or laced with malice
Do I detect
A hint of sadness
This is madness
Coy, cuddly words
Tugging at your lips
You think I am silenced
By your tongue
Your syllables kiss
Before they hiss
A liar awaiting
The wandering fist
