This is all about what we feel when someone reveals their true selves, revealing what we let ourselves in for.

Callous and cruel, not what she seems with every glint of her perfect smile.

Behind her mask, lies a dark and canaiving twisted gaze.

Now I cannot make you go, your elegant hands have sunk their way in, But I refuse to exile.

Once, you were sweet, you were fine.

But now, you fleet, and take what is mine.

I grow weary, you tell me to take it easy, that life is short.

Yet you have no boundaries, no law, no grasp of what is right and what is not.

I loved you once, not even your Lord knows why,

Maybe it was your laugh, or how you'd come to me whenever you'd cry.

You are far from gone, at least in physical form.

Your space in my head, is empty, and you've left me forlorn

You were a change of scene, a new sight.

When you smiled, you made the world almost serene, you set mine alight.

Now this is not goodnight, no doubt you will stay.

You will keep throwing the petrol and wood to burn our house down,

I'll never see those pretty eyes, hear that infectious laugh.

All that can be done, is leave my memories free to set sail.
