Disguises Lies with Truth

(written for Poetic Asides prompt "Disguises"


He disguises
lies with truth,
twisting words,
aiming where
she’s insecure.


His boldness
baffles.
His confidence
distracts.


Turning it
around.
It’s not him
it’s her.


Her truth
must be lies
formed inside
her damaged mind.

Her past

makes her paranoid
he claims.


Is she crazy?
She frets.


But soon lies
spill out.
Illuminating

the truth

in her

doubt.


His disguise
slips down.
