Deceived

Written by: Angelie Acapuyan

Muffled sounds, muffled cries
As I let you hold my hand when your heart is full of lies.
Less is the love I have to give for I'm numbing,
Less is the love spent for you when you're actually fading.

My soul is a pitcher full of silent grievance,
Ashamed of consuming every drop of it for an important instance
Who gave me instead the curse of betrayal;
That's when I realized I was facing on a wall all along when I know I've given my all.

The past and the present started to laugh at me,
An extremely unknown connivance I swear I didn't see.
Forever will they break my heart so passionately,
Reach out hand of freedom for I've been dying inside so quietly!

But I have reached out for your hand instead
Even if I know if I did, my heart will be surely be dead.
Muffled sounds, muffled cries
As I let you hold my hand again when your heart is full of lies.
