We wanted trust amongst us,
When we knew we couldn’t trust ourselves.
We wanted love amongst us,
When we knew our hearts were planted in various so called lovers
We wanted respect amongst us,
When we knew we didn’t have self-respect to even begin with.
We wanted the truth amongst us,
When we knew we had lies under our tongues.
We wanted a relationship for us,
But we ended up with a friendship with benefits.
Only we couldn’t see it,
Because we blocked it with the words ‘Love’ and ‘I Love You’
But a lie is a lie
And it’s always beautiful when told.
And a relationship,
As we call it
Lives a beautiful lie.
