I'm torn between realities

One – a brilliant lie

The other – content oblivion

To the pain behind her eyes

One holds truth for her alone

The other – fact for all

But the fragments between them are so fragile

And poised ready to fall

And it's enticing and addictive

And alternate place to live

But now I know the facts are fiction

So love is all I give

So slowly we drift farther apart

Paranoia putting up walls

And I watch as she falls away

Unheard are her distant calls

Because pain is all that lives there

In her hidden world of lies

An escape from harsh reality

Turned permanent living style

And maybe one day she'll get better

Or so every night I pray

And she'll forgive my weakness

And be glad she had the guts to stay
