You're not who I thought you were...

My stomach drops,

writhing agony.

You're not who you used to be.

Or maybe you were, but I wouldn't know.

But, now, the mask is off,

and all false pretenses drift away.

Stunned silent,

sick with knowledge.

I stand, unbelieving of

the  man I see before me.

You had me believe you were another,

fooling me with appearances.

I can't even look at you,

though I know seas of green

drown my back,

You're burning a hole in me.

Lies and deceit

leave foul taste in my mouth.

Shroud of darkness

covers me,

despite your

shining smile.

I thought I loved you,

But you're not who I thought you were.

The End
