Between the lies

My father used to say he loved my mother

My mum always replied

“Between the lies I can see the truth”

I never knew what she meant,

Aged six, I wouldn’t.

My dad was speaking to girls all night whilst telling my mother he loved her in the day.

I know now what she meant.

and I’ve learnt to read between all lies.
