What a cruel twist woven from fate's loom

 

I entered my darkened room

 

Confidence shaken by this clap of thunder

 

I can only sit back and wonder

 

At the start of this race signaled by gun or gong

 

Somewhere  along the way I went wrong

 

There is no remedy for this other than false claims

 

I'm playing myself with these wicked little games

 

With the players being me, myself, and I

 

To realize the truth I'd rather die

 

Even though there is another 

 

The truth is somewhat told by her brother

 

But one thing is certain

 

For me it's the closing of the curtains

 

Yet here I haven't been told

 

I'm dressed for summer in winter's cold

 

Or so I  compare

 

Tricking myself with safety as I go into the beast's lair

 

What brought forth this point in my life?

 

It's just bloody seas of endless strife

 

Yet I only see smooth sailing

 

Despite the sirens wailing

 

Telling me otherwise

 

But I let my false hope arise

 

To cull the dread

 

For anyone but her leaves me feeling dead

 

Those icy blue eyes were my bane

 

Yet the lies I tell myself are so profane

 

Those eyes are looking my way

 

I try to say

 

But for that there is more Hell to pay

 

I can't feel the danger

 

That to her I'm no more than a friendly stranger

 

So again with this cycle of breaking

 

Again with myself I'm faking
