Between the Lies


You loved me, once.
I loved you too. 

We thought our story 
would be different. 

We would beat the odds, 
we were sure.

First we lied to ourselves, 
that it wouldn't happen to us.
 
Then we lied to each other, 
pretending everything was alright.
 
Finally, we lied to the world, 
putting on the masks.

Somewhere between the lies 
is where my heart lived.
