lies like maggots that burrow and spawn
the devilish insides of treachery
and broken trust.
Voices; the lava that bubbles, churns and gnaws,
erodes like acid, tears at the shell
and breaks apart the fragments of brick and mortar
and the people within.
Secrecy is the glue that binds,
and honesty a beast in the shifting shadows
that dies a humble death.
