your charade.

Processed with VSCO with f1 preset

your charade.

you say that you love me, every single day

so much so that i actually believed your charade

the late night talks and the evening walks

all ends with you peeling off your socks, and reaching into a box

all to protect us from what could happen

if our judgements are skewed, if they are lacking

it’s almost time for me to begin packing

racking my brain for why i should stay

i’m sick of this repetitive motion every day

passionless lives we live together

too scared to let it go forever

even though we both know that we need to let go

this would be the third guy in a row

that on the outside, we looked happy

and sometimes, a wee bit sappy

but the passion was never there

i tried, but you were too scared

is it that it makes you feel immasculated?

to open up to me, showing your vulnerability, to have worries and fears eradicated?

and all the while i’m feeling separated while you’re battling with your sense of self

in today’s world, showing your true self means that you need help

please don’t feel that way

it’s not true, i’d love to stay

love is an emotion that demands my devotion

but it’s so hard to repair this erosion

i’m taking control, it took its toll on me

i’m stepping away from love, i wasn’t enough

to open you up

to see your inside

where your darkness dominates your mind, leaving you blind

to love


i’m sorry but not sorry that my love wasn’t enough

so i’m packing my stuff

and heading out and clearing my mind

i wish i could rewind time before seeing your kind eyes that became passionless

this love with you i desire cannot exist without the passion…it can never tire

are we going to survive this or not?

i always thought

we would

let’s light this flame

and change the game

my darling we are wild

deserving something that is not at all mild

please don’t fool me, don’t make me say

i wish i never believed in your charade.
