Truth of a lie

Varying shades of you I see
As the catwalk goes by on a roller coaster
Ascending and descending,moving to and fro
Laying in wait for the lucky victim
Happy happy would he be ever after
He shall only see through rose-scented spectacles
Oh, what an utopia!
Perfect. The already made one
As the elevator walked on in silence
The earth spinned
You slipped and fell
What a mighty thud it was
The heavens shook as the earth raged
The worm pox opened,they started crawling from the rot
The stench of you.
Bones cracked open with filtering hisses
Like a stemming kettle-pot,shawls upon shawls
The facade of you fell crashing
Oh!What an eyesore you were
Your nose couldn't just stick
You picked it for the umpteenth time,the more of you...
The less of you
Cuz you're but the truth of a lie
