The crimson truth is all I ever know,
My hopes, my dreams, rely upon your word.
I yearn to trust not knowing you’re my foe
That speaks and cuts me with a two-edged sword
I base my actions on the truth I learn
From lips impure that ruin heart and mind
I gain the naught! Emotions mine you spurn.
A road to leave confusion I can’t find
I’m broken down by beauty’s feigned embrace
Submissive glances giv’n you by my eyes
The torment comes, illuminates your face
No longer masked behind your many lies
Because forged words like knives at me were tossed,
The gift to share your life with mine was lost!
