Bits of paper and cartooned stars

Highlights undimmed words of lies

Coloured-in smiles and blackened faces

Simply enlighten fractured goodbyes

But rainbows are always unhappy

And skies are meant to fall

Promises are meant to be broken

Deceit practiced to enthrall

Don't bid the night farewell

The only time we can hide

Under quilts and pillows

Of pity and injured pride.
