MHWA Prompt: Miscommunication that causes trouble
What exactly is a lie?

Is it a deliberate falsehood told?
How about loving body language
where no love can be found?
Or maybe it is pretending to be
something or someone you aren't.
Could it be in those words
we refuse to say to others?
Or in those things you tell yourself
that keep you stuck where you are.
Maybe even just going through the actions
of an unsatisfying daily life
when deep down you yearn for more.

They are all forms of lies.

They can all lead
to trouble, to pain,
to sadness and madness,
to misconceptions,
and miscommunication
and opportunities lost.
