Cruel Joke:

Cruel Joke:

I have played a cruel joke
on the one I love,

I welcomed her into my arms
and held her close,

I gave her the home
in the hollow of my chest

as if something so beautiful
was meant to belong there.

But oh, she did not see
the weeds amidst the wildflowers,

she did not know
of the ghosts that haunted the darkness,

of the wreckage that slept
behind locked doors.

I made her believe
that something as wretched as me

could actually deserve
someone like her.
