Ten million lies
Were told to me
I swallowed them whole
I just didn’t see.

A fantasy laden
With falsehoods and schemes
Turned my life inside out
And created this dream.

Like an artist creates
With the touch of a brush
I was led to believe
I was given so much.

Cradled and charmed
Wined and dined
Taken apart
Completely resigned.

Led to believe
This would be forever
Forsakened it all
Thought we’d be together.

The buried, the hidden
It was all kept from me
I was head over heels
I firmly believed.

Stripped down and naked
I bared it all
For the touch of her hand
I took the fall.

Replaced and abandoned
Left on my own
Torn all in pieces
Her heart made of stone.
