Beneath The Skin

You've always been my everything,

The only glint conscious in my life,

The amity, the serenity... I thought I confined,

Now I see was only oblique, just fable.

A myth I was compelled to believe...

You had me in your crystalline prism,

I'd graze every wall neglecting my escape,

But your sweet chant of requiem

Kept me in your bind.

Your servitude, a materialistic desire.

My reality transcended my dreams...

It was more lucid than your untrue smile,

Your frozen, words,

Your polluted understanding and tainted love.

My redemption fell short to your distortion.

My world urged to believe, but my reason

Told me otherwise.

You're just a deceiver, a hypocrite.
