Damn lies

Prompt: Eye contact is a dangerous thing.

His lips made all the right movements,
but the sound of his voice grated.
Shudders ran up and down my spine,
my shoulder muscles tensed and tightened,
and a headache hovered just behind my frown.
He blathered on about God-knows-what,
his prattle zipping in one ear and out the other.
However inspired and passionate his speech,
his eyes told the truth.
