Your lips did speak
Pulling me in
making me believe in castles in the sky,
men in the moon
in love that can be true.
With broken heart
and tears of gold
I fell for the lies you told.
Never once did you deny
you just continued to build
one lie upon another.
Until finally the castles in the sky
fell at our feet
to be built nevermore.
You Swore! You Promised!
Spittle covers my dejected face
as I fall to my knees.
Tattered rags and dirt covered feet
attest to how far I have come.
I watch the disdain play a game
trying to hide and yet failing.
I watch those of your court pity me
but there is nothing I can do.
You swore that you would protect me!
You promised that you would love me!
And yet here I am, abased on the floor.
I hear the clack of heels as you walk away,
I hear the murmur of voices in my head,
in a flash with a blade of steel
I have ended your life.
