A facet of writing

It all depends
On how well you pretend
To utter nothing but truth with your words.

How to make them believe
What is difficult to conceive
Is the truest that they have ever heard.

Your words are theirs,
And their lives are yours,
And this may all feel entirely absurd,

But the truths you pretend
Are still truths in the end,
And they heal all that was left un-cured.
