You said your beauty was only skin deep
You said your secrets were the company you keep
You said your flaws had changed your worth
You said his eyes were blinded by lust.

I said you lied it was fear that spoke
I saw you cry as these lies broke your bones
I saw you cradle your broken heart
I said there was nothing you needed to hide

You feared he’d see beyond the mirage
I hoped he’d pull that mask away
You pushed with all the might you had
He pulled afraid he’ll break the strand

I prayed he’ll bring some healing here
You said he was never going to hear
The words unsaid, the things not done
He could not see things that weren’t here

You sat here claiming you were un-loved
I stood up weeping saying you were wrong
You said his eyes were blinded by lust
I said you covered royal jewels in dust.
