We hadn’t realised…

That we spoke of love
that was enshrouded
by child-like naïveté.

We had then,
fire in our hearts,
sparks in our eyes
and clouds in our heads


marbles in our mouths.
I am a professional liar
It pays to learn deceit
Only the naïve believe in honesty

I am a professional actress
I've perfected every line
I've mastered every mask
You think you've got the answer
I've made you drop your guard

I am a professional liar
My name is whatever you call yourself
Honesty is naïveté
Naïveté is hell
naïveté  is hell
