to carve into the shape of your heart
Your eyes sparkle under a moonlit sky
Or is it just my imagination?
You offer it to me with thousands of promises
and I take it, no questions asked
Sweet words slip from your lips
but it tastes bitter on my tongue
You wrap me in a tight embrace
and I choke on the crisp night air
We used to glow together
But now our light has faded out
The morning after, I see you
dressed in nothing but the truth
I stare at you and blink twice
For you have thrown dust in my eyes.
