Counterfeit


 

Counterfeit

 
 

Much deceit and bluff 

 
spoken 

 
with misleading lips.  

 
Your rumors so vague

 
cryptic words inside unfathomable sham

 
your translation shrouding truth like a plague.

 
Whispers that twist and stain 

 
without being spoken aloud  

 
never becoming anything other than lies faintly sung

 
in low tones 

 
weakly plied against those you don’t love.
