Infidelity [Poem]

Posted: October 1, 2015

What happens when you start believing your own illusions?

 

Lover of dreams, dreams of love

Dreams that were meant to die.

We live a lie, you and I.

You and I, we live a lie.

 

Diamond and gold, silver and pearl.

Little joys I had to buy.

Because we live a lie,

You and I.

You and I, we live a lie.

 

Practiced smiles, sullen silence.

The occasional inaudible sigh.

We live a lie, you and I.

You and I, we live a lie.

 

Moss-covered tombstones that gather

Crumbled bouquets as the years go by,

We did it! We lived a lie.

We lived a lie, you and I.
