Moment of Truth (is a lie)

But truth is funny -
- in that non humorous way
Because it exists only for a minute or two
In the moments we hopelessly sway
When whispered lies are made to benefit you

Truth is dressed up in costume
So much that you stubbornly argue
That love was there and might be still
So you tap your fingers on the empty sill

And you reply in your head
To concerned inquiries of friends
That they don't know him like you do
That his hands and eyes told truth

Making it so nothing else needed to.

I felt like her biggest fan
(and closest friend)
I felt like I could tell her anything
(And I did. tell her. everything)

And now I can't find the meaning
Behind a tear that keeps on tearing

With such an abrupt ending
To a phase I thought would last
I've hardly processed the sting
To the things that are now our past.

Don't I?

Because we were a team
Like Bonnie and Clyde
Or June and Johnny
Weren't we?

Because you saw me
Through mine and in your eyes
 Intermingled in your life
Didn't you?

Because we
Held on desperately tight
 Through greatness and strife
Didn't we?

Because you - 
Loved me,
Didn't you?

It's impossible.
Seemingly illogical.
To let you go.
Because I love you,

Don't I?
