Veracity Doesn't Count

We can be accurate in our diagnosis
We can understand why each of us is a certain way
We can analyze our pasts and personalities well
We can have the psychological terminology right
We can label each other correctly
We can be splendid in identifying each other’s faulty thinking
We can look at each other as subjects of our own intelligence
We can determine where the other one errs and be in the right
We can be perfect in criticism and insults
We can be accurate in our conclusions
We can see each other’s oversights correctly
We can inspect each other’s weaknesses and flaws impeccably
We can survey each other’s bad habits and watch them unfold
We can have each other nailed and our case would stand in a court of law

But, in love, veracity takes a tender form
