The Best Laid Plans

The best kept secrets,
The best laid plans
All playing parts,
Like the strings in your hands
I'm your marionette,
You're controlling life and limb
And every time I see you
Everything else goes dim.
I can't explain these feelings,
As hard as I may try
My facade is cracking open,
But I won't let you see me cry.
I watch these images,
Flickering on my brain,
The pain of seeing you two together
Is enough to drive one insane.
But even though I'm hurting,
Trying to make myself numb,
You want to see me devastated,
Make me deaf, blind and dumb.
I'm screaming, screaming, screaming, trying to
Cover up my ears.
Wanting to ignore myself,
Wanting to drown in my tears.
I won't let you win this battle
You're going to lose this war
Then you can live happily ever after
You and your little whore.
