Masking Reality

I thought for a second I could transform
To make a new life were pain was without formation
In the air I breath, the two faced looks I receive.

I didn't believe that two times I could feel
Your knife in the back of my
breaking heart
To trusting to see the truth behind your lies.

Now sitting here without fear just regret
of the way I decided to stay
Truthful to my naive plan to be real, open honest
not letting past wrongs in the book of life affect the ending
Of it all

All being the operative word
To observe
within the bounds of the reality of understanding me
No longer having the ability
To protect me
Only destroy me

In a final act of unwavering cruelty
Your mask goes back on to mock me
The face of reality
To terrifying for anyone else to see
