I thought my life was a fairy tale,
I believed it was ideal.
I had no idea it was all a sham,
That nothing I had was real!
I didn’t know how you mocked me daily
Or how you laughed inside,
Whenever I spoke of our marriage,
And my overwhelming pride.
What a fool I was; what a scapegoat!
Now there’s a descriptive word!
I turned a blind eye to your actions
And believed just what I heard.
I believed when you said you loved me.
I believed when you said you were true.
I believed that you respected me;
I believed in us; in you.
Now my beliefs have all been shattered;
I struggle each day to survive.
To make a new life out of rubble;
To keep what’s left of my love alive.
