The Unbearable Lightness

Truth is heavy
Like a sackful of stones that falls on the ocean's bottom
Few can reach out to it
Some fish gnaw at it out of curiousity
It rusts and moulds
Aching for a loving touch
Forlorn and forever alone

A lie is so light
It refuses to sink
Bobbing and tantalising on the ocean's surface
Waves keep lapping it up making it shine even more
It glistens and glimmers
You touch it and yearn for more
It makes you its slave
