Her smile is but a facile disguise

A clever facade to hide flimsy lies.

So happy were we, until she did leave

And here I lie, too betrayed to grieve.

She whispered sweet words so incredibly fake

And left naught, but oh, did she take!

Hate her, I can't, though I did try

Weeping as sleepless nights passed by.

Her touch I still cherish, as she once did mine

The look in her eyes, in that dress oh so fine.

Our time together was the best yet

But even in paradise the sun must set.

My quest was happiness but now it's too late

So I stare into blankness and curse my fate.

The lesson I learned from her final goodbye

Is for ego to live, love must surely die.
