My Black Lie

December 20, 2008
By Jeff Grover, Prineville, OR

It starts in the heart
so tiny so small
It's not much to start
It's not much at all
But soon it will grow
To beyond all its length
To beyond all the love
To beyond all the hate
It will grow and devour
It will make people bleed
It will make lovers lairs
And suddenly it's seen
Such a small thing
so strong to devour
A life of anyone
That's all it desires
All that was light will turn dark
and all that was will still remain
as i fall
and as we fade
my black lie
is all that remains
