Secrets well hidden
Mysteries only I knew
Lies only I spoke
A fabrication of the truth
Comfort I found
Living a life of lies
Filled with sweetness and deceit
I never saw you coming
A glass house I dwelled in
But I was careless
I let the kids throw stones
I let my guard down
My fences became invisible
The line I drew…fading white
Eyes that saw through black glass
The eyes that broke the ice
The eyes that threw the largest stone
The stone that brought it all down
The eyes that saw through the lies
Eyes I dreaded
Eyes that could rewrite my story
Eyes that faded all lines
The eyes that forced the truth out of its cage
The eyes that tore the veil
Naked I became
Rid of clothes
Naked and in the cold
Undressed for all to see
