Own lie.

One lie.

Lone to lie,
Now lying alone.

The author's comments:
Just a little word play. It takes on the perspective of a liar and what goes through someone's mind in the initial stages of lying. The title explains the further stage of lying: being alone as people lose trust in the liar. And it was not "only one lie" a lie is hurtful and damaging just as large as covering the sun, the light of all truth.

Very creative idea of word play. It was like a family tree where the word got smaller but the meaning became darker. You should do this again but break down an entire thoughtful sentence. Be a lot of work but I loved to see you do it!
