white lies. handle with care. (reprise)

25.01.2012 - Exibit
I'd rather be lied to than to be given a white lie. A lie is complete, it bears no truth, a fabrication; its sister, is a distortion, a corruption used to deceive and delude. It's waiting, growing and feeding on trust, waiting for the moment when it will explode. Then, the white shards will shatter and pierce your eyes that have been fooled. It is the white lies that leave people blind, lost in the realms of deception. Tiresias was blessed with the gift of prophecy, we are only condemned to be sightless, marked with the brand of the betrayed.
