You can’t escape
once you’ve been ensnared
now you are replicating the weaver
your words drip with lies
you sneer at your disguise
slicing the truth into ribbon
circling your prey fixing your eyes
hoping to snatch another innocent of your ways
you care little for the heart that beats
as long as you have your say
little do you see the clay like mire
that is opening to swallow you
caught in you own deceit
you who have wandered astray
you will fall to the pit
of your own evil plans
fool, your world is dull
it leads to death
The image drawn in the Bible of the deceiver is one who schemes to trip and mislead the young, innocent and the naive. This web may glisten with a momentary beauty but it lays a trap that few escape. Follow the truth rather than lies and follow the light of day!!!
“He who speaks truth tells what is right, But a false witness, deceit.” ~Proverbs 12:17
“They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed.” ~Titus 1:16

Very true words, but the liars never learn.
Sadly those lies hurt others…
Indeed true words…alas the liars rarely it seems to fall into that pit.
Lies really will bind…
