You are the most beautiful thing I´ve ever seen
My only one, my baby girl
You will be my life and my soul.

I knew they were lies,
Even so I nourished from them
Like a starved shell of a human being
Forced myself to believe,
even though I knew better.

I love you.

One by one, they came
Stronger, more believable, more beautiful

And I fell
Into this deep, comforting lullaby of lies
Willingly tearing sanity apart,
letting myself get devoured.

.........

"You deserve better." I told her, almost pleaded.
Her answer tore my heart to pieces:

But tell me darling;
Isn´t it better to fall asleep in a bed of beautiful lies,
than to lay awake in this devastating reality?
