Your ugly face

Your face is not your face,
I no longer recognize it,
Who is this, help me know 
Dear ugly stranger,
Go away and bring my best friend back,
But as reality reach me closer,
Dear ugly stranger,
You are not a stranger after all,
Were you here the whole time,
Oh dear heaven, Were you that ugly,
Perhaps distraction killed the sight of you,
Now, that the sight is clear,
Your ugly face is unbearable for me to see,
The love you sold me for,
Is it worth it all,
The love you sold me for,
Is it worth it all,
Was it too easy,
To lie and betray trust,
Was it too easy,
To give it all up,
Those sweet lips of yours,
Or so he thinks,
Would never speak of truth,
I got that true, right?
Please don’t try to find me,
I’m sincerely sorry,
But I won’t be there anymore,
When you come finding me,
You’ll soon will, I know,
Forget the name you once been told,
Forget the days you once lived,
I’m gone for you already, keep it that way,
I’ve said my goodbyes a while ago,
It’s time to let go,
But before you go,
Pack your perfect lies,
Goodbye, again.
