Lies are a reflex to Fear.
Fear brings nothing but Pain.
Pain is nothing but Punishment.
Punishment for the Lies.
Pain is consuming and unrelenting as is Guilt.
As is Shame.
A Shame on what's been done and left unsaid.
On Guilt that should have never been yours.
Lies are but Fear in the form of Shame.
