To love and honor were the words spoken,
Lies and hate were the real token.
Trust and faith were lost from the beginning,
The deception that was done was never ending.
Cherished moments are now part of the past,
A love so true how did it even last?
Through rain and shine, there for each other,
The deception, each, held forever.
Playing make believe, lost in a dream world,
Til death do they part, together until they are old.
All of it a game, both of them play,
The deception all around, someone will pay.
Tears of pain fall down their faces,
Now all this room, all the empty spaces.
Will their eyes ever see peace?
The deception, will it ever cease?
As the nights grow longer,
Their anger grows stronger.
Weeks filled with pain and sorrow,
The deception, something time can borrow.
Destroying the words they had both once so deeply cared,
Happiness together, two lives they should have spared.
Young ones, learning as they grow,
The deception they will never know.
Now hearts of stone left to crumble,
The words ‘I love you’ come out in a mumble.
The tears roll down during the confrontation,
To realize the tortured misery behind deception.
