see through you
i see who you are now
your a liar
and a faker.
you are cruel
and a poser
you told me things and made me dream,
like i never have before

i see through your act now
you never meant what you said
i never saw
i never noticed
when you clipped me to a leash
i followed you blindly
even when you staked me in the yard and left
getting farther
and farther away
and this leash
shorter
and shorter
and when you finally left i kept waiting...
and waiting
and waiting
you never came back
and the leash rotted away
and still, i waited

random strangers walking past,
giving pity i don't want
telling me there's no hope

please, don't say that!
i begged

i knew the truth in their words
i see now you left
with not a word
just a promise to be back
tied to a leash
never meant to last
i finally see the light.
now in watching for these traps every where i step
in case i get leashed,
and left again.
so don't come back,
because i can see through you,
and everyone's act
