Compulsive Liar

She said something to me
And I thought it is true
I wondered how it could be
At that moment I knew

A story that she herself wove
Narrated, compelling and credible
Suddenly as I watched in awe
It turned confusing and terrible

It was a twist in the tale
Intriguing, but went all wrong
Shows how beliefs could fail
No matter however strong.

A random lie streaked in warp
Could not be covered by the weft
And toothless truth fell in trap
A broken weave all that was left

It so pains to confess this
But I can’t take it any higher
Ah! My mind, she just is
A bloody compulsive liar
