Laid to rest

Those who stand behind lies
Cannot stand to confront truth
If I knew how to whisper I would not
If I am not welcomed but you want to falsely greet me
"Do not!"
I will not hate you
I will not love you
Neither emotion I believe is what you deserve
Truth will always surface to be found standing on solid ground
I will not service unstable ground just for me to lie
I will not spit bitter words from my tongue to create a spat
Nor veil spite under sweetly flavoured words for one to find palatable
Exhibition of truth can be an epic emotion
To be screened will not always be allowed
To be screened will not always be allowed
Either or neither
However deviants will always secrete tales of silence fiction
If choose to pose more temerity with your lies
Your world will finally end all topsy-turvy
A recurring echo aloud
As 'Truth' is the epic emotional exhibition of infallibility
A recurring echo allowed
Rising in prominence laid lies down with its wake
Funeralized embodied lies so no one can hear
Lying remains fall on death…
