The Lies of an Empty Shell

Posted on Nov 26, 2012


So once again she’s been lied to
For many months now, can it be true?
Why do they do it to her, she can’t tell
These the lies of an empty shell

She tries to believe in what they say
But with her life they so play
Not caring at all what they do
Not realising what they’ll lose

Her head bowed in sadness, she walks away
For she’s no choice on this day
Betrayed her trust they so have
Forever for them she’ll feel so sad

For herself she puts on a brave face
Her sadness leaves no trace
Look closely though at what they’ve done
The lies of an empty shell have had their fun
