Melt the Lies

March 12, 2008
By Rachel Ausura, Newport News, VA

Night comes through

the days we knew

lost in tangled dark

we wander from the start

Shhh- don't make a sound

the truth might fly

then the lies

can't conceal the ties

that bind our eyes,

hold our tongues,

suppress our minds

Sit back


everything's fine

hold up the paper mask

but the illusion's fading fast

Rain- please pour

crash onto this place

melt the painted smiles,

the plaster expressions

sweep away in rushing waters,

tears of relief mixed with the

pure waters of Truth
