chariot of lies



i only wanted to impress you,
i just wanted you to think
that i was something special..
different than your average idiot.
i never imagined
that a couple innocent lies
could change me.
i guess i always believed
that you become
who you say you are,
but every fairytale
has a fake little princess
to ride along on her chariot of lies.

i told you the reality
could never be quite as nice.
and you smiled
and told me i was perfect.

i couldn't bear to tell you
that you had only met the
make-believe princess,
and never the demoness within.
i couldn't bear to tell you
all the secrets inside
until i had already lied my chances away.

i only wanted to impress you,
but look at me now.
