    Lie is Central to BeLIEve

    My faith in you was shattered

    Upon discovery of your deception

    I believed we had abundant love

    ‘Soul mates’ no longer a crazed perception

     

    Until she entered into our lives

    A silent, random predator

    Sowing confusion with her hypnotic sway

    Discovering naïveté in her repertoire

     

    Your heart was torn asunder

    Do you rescue the damsel in distress

    Convincing yourself you do not notice

    The silver claws behind the dress?

     

    Or do you choose instead

    To follow the more noble route

    Ignoring the manufactured cries

    And remaining with the one who’s always loved without a doubt?

     

    You taught me a valuable lesson

    Of how the lie is central to believe

    She has since shredded your heart

    And you will never be allowed a reprieve
