I see you smile,
and I'm suspended
in time
in space.
You help me fit
into this confined place.
I hear their voices
as we pretend to sleep.
You whispering promises
I'm hoping you'll keep.
What does a heart do
When it's trapped by lies
and only a fool
to realize
that there's a serpent
in it's paradise?
