It is a tight rope.  

We both danced very, very carefully on the edges and fringes of truth.

 If I really told you how I felt, really,

would you shrivel up like a slug in salt?

 or would you be robust like  

the bouquets of pink  roses  in the lane?

We swallow greedily any lie that flatters us, but we sip only little by little at a truth we find bitter.                     Denis Diderot
