In the beginning your beauty is beyond compare
At first they smile and stare
Say the sweetest words and strip you bare
Dig you in deep
Make promises impossible to keep
Entwine your body into your story
Gently open the door to your secrets
Tell you they’ll keep it in raspy whispers
In your ear
And the bricks start to rattle and crack
And you fall a little
Letting the dust hit your back
Inevitably they see one crumble
And you think to yourself
Should I jump or stumble?
Underneath you already know what happens when they see below
the light and the darkness starts to show
Worthless words melt like snow
Swells the undertow
And takes it all far down below
Where it fades and crumbles the paper
It was built upon
And burns the rocks
That cool over time
To make the bricks
I stack
Until next time
