The Perfect Lie


My heart is made of ice
And it's been chipped away
The very soul of who I am
You stole and threw away
I know I should forgive you
We used to be so good
But my life is moving forward
As both you and I should

My life has not been easy
It's never gone as planned
And things will keep on happening
That I don't quite understand
I was so in love with you
You came and saved my life and made it all new
Sometimes I still sit and think of us but it makes me cry
Because you and me baby were the perfect lie

Some days takes all my effort just to get out of bed
I know I should get outside but I just lie there instead
The world belongs to you now, it's yours and yours alone
For I can never lie in your arms, in the place I used to call home

My life has not been easy
It's never gone as planned
And things will keep on happening
That I don't quite understand
I was so in love with you
You came and saved my life and made it all new
Sometimes I still sit and think of us but it makes me cry
Because you and me baby were the perfect lie

Everyday it gets harder to know that you won't walk through my door
And I can't wait for the day when I won't love you anymore
But for now I have the memories of the times we used to share
And the day is getting nearer when I finally won't care

My life has not been easy
It's never gone as planned
And things will keep on happening
That I don't quite understand
I was so in love with you
You came and saved my life and made it all new
Sometimes I still sit and think of us but it makes me cry
Because you and me baby were the perfect lie

That awful day when I learned the truth
I felt like my heard had been crushed
I couldn't breathe and I couldn't see
I was drowning in the lie that was us.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This started as a song in my head and it just developed from there. I've recently got into a new relationship from a pretty intense one before. I'm much happier now than I ever was, but you can never quite forget the other person when the bond was so intense.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
