Beat By A Rumour And Decieved By A Lie - Poem by Silence Dogood

I tell myself Im okay while I paste on my smile.
I can forgive but forgetting takes a while.
Your words hurt me they cut to my soul.
I said I wouldnt cry or lose control.

But lies were told and you broke my heart.
I told myself i wouldnt fall apart.
But still tears streamed down my face.
And you became my worst mistake.

My best kept secret and favourite lie.
My one true love, my hardest goodbye.
All those nights I spent crying for you.
Those tears kept falling did you cry too?

We walk down the hall but dont say a word.
All those sorries were never heard.
Our friends greet us and we say hello.
Waiting for the day when we'll let go.

The past sticks with us we cant leave it behind.
How I miss those days when I called you mine.
When you kissed my cheek and hugged me tight.
When you called at twelve just to say goodnight.

But you said those things and brought tears to my eyes.
We got beaten by a rumour and decieved by a lie.
I'll paste on my smile and tell myself Im okay.
I'll walk through the halls and survive another day.
