Make Believe

She wanted to give him the world

He began to entertain the thought

 

He played along with the game

Believing it would never happen

Then when she tried to give it all to him

He only seemed amused and left

He never believed her and had only fed her lies

 

She was distraught and alone

Left with so much to give and no one to believe

In her and her love…

Coat Of Lies

You varnish the truth

With another coat of lies

Thinking I wont notice what is real

Hidden behind your story

But after years of this

I know how you lie

And will no longer be sucked in

The stench of your lies

Is as strong as the whiskey on your breath

I know you’ve been drinking

And it breaks my heart again

If only you would see

The damage each drop creates

So go ahead and brush on another layer

And stain what relationship we have left

Somehow the truth will win in the end

Goodbye Mr. B.

What is wrong with me?

How come I couldn’t see?

See the truth in front of my eyes?

Or see the way he twisted his lies?

It was his magnetic personality in the end

That made me feel he might not be a friend

Too much high and mighty attitude

To me he just came off as being rude

So I say goodbye to someone else

And sit down as my heart melts

Never does something good last

You’d think I’d learn from my past.

Final Curtain?

The curtains are a filter

For the harsh sunlight

Trying to block out the day

Block out the pain of last night

You lied

You broke your promise

You destroyed my hope

The sun may be shining

But my day is gloomy

Should I say goodbye

Is this the end

I shrink into my chair

Wanting to disappear

If only I knew answers

Instead of feeling only pain

No More Second Chances

Destroyed by you again

This devastation has to end

I let you in and trust once more

Only to have you walk out the door

 

Even though it hurts so deep

And I suddenly begin to weep

The lies don’t ever seem to stop

And this life on the edge I have to drop

 

I lock the door and take a deep breath

Knowing this is our relationship’s death

I could not control our fate

If only I’d known before our first date…
