beautiful lies

i thought you cared

when you said you loved me

but you wove a web of lies

and complete make believe

thinking about it now

i think i always knew

too many coincidences

and facts that don't add up

but ignorance was bliss

and i found salvation in your lies

you were so beautiful

with every word you said

and i gave you my love;

my heart; my soul;

i gave you my everything –

believing in you

and trusting you;

something you said

i could never ever do

i finally did, but it shattered me

because i found the truth

and it was not you

your colors were beautiful

but so were your lies

'imsorry' was your favorite

and 'iloveyou' was your greatest

both heartbreaking; both false

and both just another one of your

beautiful lies
