The Illusion Burst

I lost myself in you
And now it hurts
Reality came true
And the illusion burst

Finally, we together could be
But like a scared hunted deer
You couldn’t even look at me
All you projected were fear

I was out of my essence
In shock of what I just saw
Your former strong presence
Vanished and exposed your flaw

That you were never anything but a vision
And in reality, falling short
That you were just a man on a mission
Ignoring your heart with your thought

Letting your mind’s paranoia and fear
Control your body, heart and being
Making sure I couldn’t come you near
Only the void of love I am seeing

So painful to realise and see
How I lost myself again to ‘man’
That in truth, we could never be a ‘we’
Your paranoia my heart can’t withstand

Like a scared hunted deer
In the woods, you vanished
You couldn’t have me near
My true being was banished

I lost myself in you
And now it hurts
Reality came true
And the illusion burst!
