You lied to me, spinning tales so grand.
You mistreated me, leaving scars on my hands.
You promised me things you had no right to
You let me love and hate you and told me we were through.
You made plans time and again and never showed.
You tried to appease me, but your excuses never slowed.
You made me laugh and once upon a time loved me.
You were intelligent and funny and made me free.
You tricked my mind into believing so many things.
You twist, turn and look down at your rings.
You once were someone else, so full of grace.
You stare and make that grimace, that face.
I hear a sound and feel arms from behind encircling me
Pulling my mind out of my self-reflecting reprieve.
Come back to bed, a whisper placed at my ear.
I leave my reflection and return to where I feel no fear.
