Scenario: Starts with one word, each line increasing by one word.
Silent, she sat.
"Why do you lie?"
Her lips moved not once,
Responding as always with sullen silence.

He knows the answer; the truth is evident-
It's pointless to dig for what's already been unearthed.
Broken and separate, they keep to that deeply rutted road.
