The Lie of Us
By Rei Marsh
We were happy once
First love, first chances
Then broken hearts
Why the fuck we couldn't figure out what we wanted
Only the gods know that
I wish I did
Then we decided we still wanted each other
You were taken
I was taken
It wasn't meant to be
Why didn't I see that?
I lived a lie for you these past few months
You were unhappy
I thought that would make it better
I was wrong
Why the hell do you desire me when you're taken?
Maybe because you won't have to have me then
I can only guess
This pain is punishment for the lies I spilled to you
But nothing matter anymore
You burn yourself to escape the shit I put you through
Feels good, doesn't it?
As if I'm destroying you with my own bare hands
Would you like it that way love?
It kills me how I hurt you
But I'm sick of feeling do fucking guilty
And carrying on the lie so aptly named
