Loneliness is an ally I'd rather keep,
Even if in misery I must sleep.
Hope comes and inspires a dream,
Thought it evaporates faster than steam.
In my mind we'll dance and flirt,
Around topics of love we'll skirt.
And you with a knowing look,
Will admit that your heart I took.
But all the while I'll know the truth,
That this a dream, just a spoof.
And after I open my eyes,
I'll feel sick from all my lies.
Poisoned now, I'll compromise,
Giving in to things I despise,
Just to win your heart.
I wonder now, how to start.
