is it a dream or a lie

Mon, 03/30/2020 - 07:23 -- Aws

Broken window shows each dream
Shattered lie 
A wish upon a twisted heart 
Shards of truth like pane of broken glass
A broken dream that came to pass
A teardrop fallen in the rain
An unseen symbol of your uncalled pain
A silver thread upon the ground
Of lost hopes that will be found 
A web of lies
Formed from each defeat 
Bound by hatred from each flame 
Burning bright
Blood red tears that fall right through 
Showing all that wasn't true 
A dream twisted to the end 
A lie to truth from which you bend
A cold hatred from where ever 
Back to silence shattered by love 
A dreaming wish fallen from a heart
As each lie rips it apart 
A teardrop falls from each eye 
A wish that made in the form of a lie
Hopes that shattered upon the floor
A dreaming eye that went unseen
A wish each year to have it sell
Your secrets that you can not share
Hidden by all yet free to see
Each truth, lie, dream and wish as they be
To turn them back, a nightmare made
Losing battles, memories fade away
And hopes and dreams are sold 
A lie born into a day
A reality turned back on you 
From a truth they never knew 
Careful all, for you will see
That secrets and dreams aren't safe to be
They take your dream, twist it around
Shatter the memories upon the ground
Whisked away by just one scream
They give you back your twisted dream
But when they do, this I tell
Your dream in exchange for a nightmare is what you sell
