Day 3: Deceit

Awake in the darkness of night

Thoughts become aware

Did you care?

Hidden behind smiling lips

A scheming mind filled up with tricks.

Cooking up dishes served cold

What made you feel so goddamned bold?

Inducing emotion just to smother

As you run to the arms of another.

Thinking that I’d be so blind,

Turning our love into crime,

Hunting me down from the start,

Playing the keys of my heart.

All the ways you amazed

To leave me just dazed

Like a mouse in the grasp of a cat.

But plainly what you failed to see

Was that I’ll always be free.

The gift I’ve been given is wisdom

Knowing that playing I’ll win some

And lose others, as I hover,

Free as a bird in the sky.
