You were beautiful once, before we met, and I showed you all of the ugly things

Hidden behind the camouflage screens, cutting you off from a cancerous world

 

I brought the infection to your door; I injected the truth into your ears

I opened your eyes with a poisonous kiss; I stripped you of innocence and drenched you with guilt

 

You were beautiful once, before we met, and I showed you all of my ravaged heart

Cursed by revenge long overdue, entombed and suppressed by molten regrets

 

I playacted your savior, though you were my salvation

You guarded my faith, though you were my hope

 

I arrested your dreams, but you were my prison

I freed you from them and bound you to me

 

You were beautiful once, before we met, and I kept from the world how exquisite you were

 

You were beautiful once, before we met, and still, even now, I’m unworthy of you
