Kelita Angath ~ Little White Lies


Little white lies.
The things that I’m afraid of.
I might have said one or two,
Or maybe so many that I can’t even count.

This is the darkness captured inside you.
Those that are kept secrets.
The black key to the white box.
Where the truth lies.

Why such a name?
Why not little black lies.
There’s nothing truthful about it,
It’s simply unpleasant.

It’s useful to some,
Deadly to others.
Find a way to betray it,
Before it takes over you.
