Whispers warned me that I should stay away
Each reciting things you wanted them to say
Trying to ward off anyone who might come around
By keeping up the pretense by which you were bound
No one knew if your elaborate anecdotes were true
But either way they relayed what you wanted them to

A monster is what you claimed to be
Disappointment is what you promised to me
Except your deep blue eyes told me it was nothing but a mask
From that moment on unveiling you was to be my task
I had no idea the extend of what I was about to discover
But I knew I had to rid you of the charade you used as a cover

You resisted my friendship not wanting to fall for temptation
Nevertheless you were soon yearning for my adoration
Pledging to end your fiendish ways if I was by your side
I hesitantly agreed hoping you would honor the conditions applied
You swore to never make a promise you knew you could not keep
The faulty wording never fazed me until I was already in too deep

Apologies and alibis became the broken record of our debates
My heart broke as I finally began to comprehend the straits
A final blow led to the demise of my remaining devotion
You didn’t seem to care but I know that was a conditioned emotion
For so long I blamed you for raising havoc on my heart
But you warned me that you were a monster from the start

Seemingly the days and weeks dragged on now for much longer
Since you had now moved away I thought I would soon grow stronger
Ultimately time went by like it always seems to do
Still not once did I receive any word from you
Eventually I was pushed along as the tide does to a stone
Never imagining that you would come back to atone

The disguise now gone the man I always saw finally sees the light of day
Now asking for my forgiveness I have so many things to say
Past pain and past passion evoke memories to try to make their plea
But I already know that the man inside the monster will always own a piece of me
