    Needs work, but I got lazy with it.

    If I Told You The Truth


    If I told you the truth, I know you would not believe me
    A thousand lies with my eyes never seemed to be beneath me
    But this moment in time is so perfect in my mind
    I want stop this moment and freeze you
    Because I know that I cannot be
    what you need in order to please you
    At times it seems I'm emotionless
    while your caress is effortless
    Tumbling down the walls of my fortress of heartlessness
    But despite your levels of superstitious intuition
    You cannot discern that you are the manifestation of fruition
    Here in this place I feel disgraced
    I yearn for you to see the mask torn from my face
    Blinded by affection for what seems to be perfection
    How can you ever really see?
    My illusion is an intrusion on what this love could be
    My delusion is believing that maybe someday you'll see me
    Behind the modesty and travesties with no apologies
    And love me wholeheartedly despite all of these
    You've only seen the woman I've wanted you to see
    So I know your misunderstandings are my own doing
    For you are demanding what I'm still pursuing
    If only you knew the other side to me.
