Sweet words?

You can't live in a fairy tale...
Sweet words, on the surface loving, kind

Can sting the most when you know the truth behind.

Once you trusted, believed

You were part of something special

Finally kept so safe in loving arms

By your knight in shining armour.

Then the path became bumpy,

Rocks put down needing to be passed.

It turned out knights don’t exist in the real world.

They belong in fairy tales, you were real.

So he didn’t want to fight for you,

He had no sword to swing.

Sweet words dripping in poison

Pushed you into a bottomless ravine.

Left there, broken and alone

You laid still, not wanting to move.

How could it go so wrong, when it seemed so right?

Day by day, you healed

Starting the long climb back up.

What remained ever as strong

Were all those sweet words spoken

That were nothing but shallow and fake.
