You became my worst nightmare
When I woke up to the reality
That you took all we shared mere.
I never see it coming
That you would leave a scar sotaunting.

Like a broken glass,
My heart shattered in pieces.
Each piercing piece,
Reflected the moments we shared
And it hurts even more that all was built on lies.
Hid behind your smile

Reminiscing on how magical our first kiss was,
I cried a river
Knowing that was acted too
It was all you, acting
And me playing the fool
You were all a lie.
