Soliloquy
-----------

If I stand behind this curtain,
And let you speak your mind,
Will you thrill me?

If I am quiet as a mouse
As you express your undying love,
Will it be for me?

Honey-dipped, forked-tipped,
Your tongue flicks
As you spill forth lies.

The words slip from your mouth,
Spiraling upward into infinity,
Becoming merely wind.

If I stand behind this curtain,
And let you speak your mind,
Will you release me?

If I am quiet as a mouse
As you express your undying love
Will you give peace to me?

Poison pill becomes
My every thought
And nothing stops the pain.

The words you speak,
The lies you tell,
Haunt me again.

If I stand behind this curtain,
And let you speak your mind,
Will you move along to the next girl?

If I am quiet as a mouse
As you express your undying love,
Will it be for a better girl?

Weeping, sobbing unchecked,
Catches in my breath
Knowing the worth of your words.

Pretending I never saw,
Pretending I do not think,
Pretending I never heard.

If I stand behind this curtain,
And let you speak your mind,
Will you tell me the truth?

If I am quiet as a mouse
As you express your undying love,
Will you give me the needed proof?

Poison pill, adder-tongued,
You will never tell the truth.
But you have given me the proof.

Trying to get over
The feeling you never loved me.
You loved your reflection in me
Or what I could do for you.

Your charm beguiled me,
Made me believe I was
The only one for you.
But you were never going to be mine.

You made a vow to me,
But you had your fingers crossed.
Or maybe you never realized
How selfish you are.

Love is sacrifice
But a compromising one--
Both sides taking,
Both sides giving.

When the scales are
Out of balance too long
They tip, exposing
The lie beneath.

You never loved me.
You loved what I could do for you.

Someday, my lovely, you will accept that you will never be enough for the wrong ones, but you are absolutely enough for the right ones.
