Eloquent Liar

she had a gift
that something special
all who heard her
speak believed
and seemed un-
able to think for
themselves
she was smooth like
polished copper
her smile was
genuine, her touch
warm and welcoming
oh, yes –
you were sure you
were her best friend
her confidante
she was the person-
ification of
mendaciloquent
I would have
fallen for her lies
too – if she were not
me
