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.
