Someone says they love you. And you believe them. You're in love. Everything seems colourful. And then one day the illusion falls apart and you're face to face with the truth. You weren't loved, you weren't wanted. You were lied to, you were fooled. How would you feel? What would you do?

Your sweet words 

Your open smiles

Your promises to walk 

With me many miles 

Your assurances that 

Made me believe

In fantasies that would 

Countless woes relieve

Your companionship and

Presence that I so valued 

When we were together

So close we seemed glued 

It was all fake 

Everything was a lie 

The smiles and the laughter 

The consolation when I'd cry 

You were a liar

I never meant anything to you

Your innocence was a mask 

No part of you was true 

You wounded me 

And left me to die 

Now laughing at my state 

Your derision no longer shy 

Why did you do this?

What did you gain?

From this damage, this tragedy 

And so much of pain 

Your false love 

And your fake words 

Now pierce and agonize like

My heart's thousand shards 

You killed me 

And got away 

I know, you were never 

One to stay 

But how long will you 

Be on the run?

As you sow shall you reap 

Soon it'll be your turn 

My story is finished 

But yours has just started 

I'll watch from above 

Until all feels sorted 

You're no more than 

A speck of dust 

I'll be avenged, you liar 

My love, my tears and my trust 

And then I'll smile

 Then I'll breathe again 

I'll fly above the clouds

Come back as snow on the mountains.
