Living A Lie - Poem by Crazylady Weirdo

I thought you were someone else,
But you were just an imposter,
A phony, a fake.
And each day,
I hope and pray
I never make your mistake.
Because I never want to be like that,
I can’t ever wear your mask.
Yeah, it takes guts to reveal your disguise,
But don’t you see these tears in my eyes?
I don’t know what made you do this.
I don’t know how I can get through this.
If you aren’t there,
Why should I care?
How would I dare?
If you aren’t there,
All I feel is pain and despair.
Cause I’m lost in your eyes,
And I can’t escape,
The memories that I hold dear.
Hundreds of thousands of questions racing through my mind,
But to ask them all,
There isn’t the time.
As I look into those peaceful eyes.
Now you’re happy.
Now you’re sad.
Now you’re distressed.
Now you’re mad.
But you blame it on others,
Like your dad.
But in reality I know,
I’m the one at whom you’re mad.
You’d never admit it,
You’d never dare.
But I’m the one
Causing all the pain and despair.
So I have to end it and say goodbye,
Instead of eternally
Living a lie.
