LIE IN SILENCE

More and more I bite my tongue.

I say nothing,

for the words I hold back,

intentionally or not,

will hurt you.

Causing someone pain is against my nature.

I prefer to give gentle touches and lingering warmth.

Yet all I can offer you is this

deafening silence.

To save you,

I will carry these burdensome words.

Because the truth hurts

more painful than a voiceless lie.

Or does it?
