A Lie Fooled Me


Eyes loud open
But blind enough reckon
Ears sound enough to hear
But none is able to bare

being fooled
Being doomed
Betrayal flowing its wonders
Dissappointment blowing its boaders

It is sad
If that pain is instilled
Just as it is bad
When loyalty has been distilled

If tears could talk
I would let there pain take a walk
And if my heart was never a rock
I would kept breaking like a door lock

How do your repair
That which can not be repeared
Ones trust is lost
Like a chicken I'll let roast
Because you do not
Derserve my trust.
