A Lie Spoken Long Ago.

That lie--
I wonder if it ever
did fade from your lips.
Or do you still
hide it there,
in deep corners
and chapped red.
Do you still utter
the lie that
you cried so long ago?

Perhaps when trouble
has caught up,
it will momentarily
leave your lips.

I like the idea of things fading from a person.
