What If I Told You

What if I told you the truth
No, I don't love you
Once I did, before
You took my heart
Yes, I offered it gladly
For I believed you
Your full, warm lips
Promised me with beautiful lies

What if I told you the truth
You looked through me
Shadows of other women
Danced in my light
Blossomed, wilted
and faded away leaving
only me to drown in
the void of those black eyes
