You once told me that people lie.
Maybe cause you lie more than most.
You may call deception your best friend.
And may see my passions as a source of jest.
Imagine me, grounded in despair.
wondering why I fell for you.
People seem to be sincere,
when they come so awfully near.
With pain and tears in my eyes,
I ask you why you broke my heart,
but with these words, you shrug me off.
“Simply cause I could my dear”,
Time would pass and the pain would go.
I’d forget I called you love.
I’d smile again at simpler times.
Remembering when I thought you mine.
Then our paths would cross one day,
And with a pause I’d see you there,
You’d look at me, mix of shock and fear
wondering how I would react.
But, I’d just smile and nod at you,
The forgotten man that you’ve become.
