What did it feel like as you slept with him?
Did you think about his wife, his children, the sin?
The family whose hearts you’ll shatter.
The devastation you’ll cause, did any of that even matter?
Did the past you had with him make you feel justified?
The lying and cheating, does it make you feel alive?
Her heart broken and shattered because you took it all.
Nothing could be done as everyone watched her fall.
Your poisonous smile, evil behind those eyes.
Pretending you care and you’re sorry, nothing but venomous lies.
A life taken, suddenly she was gone.
Don’t pretend you’re fucking sorry, isn’t it what you wanted all along?
Standing in the shadows, a smile twisted across your lips.
You watch with satisfaction while others are coming to grips.
Now you can have what you came for. She is out of the way.
It turned out better than you had hoped for, forever silenced, nothing more anyone can say.
Pushing your way in, pretending to be a saint.
Oblivious to what others see, looking at you with hate.
Hope you are content in this glass castle that you built.
Void of empathy for those you hurt, no sorrow or no guilt.
Dancing around in your twisted reality, others see right through.
Whispers behind your back, feeling undeserved pity for you.
You see, with each lie you spill from your lips, thinking you fooled us all.
Just like tiny cracks forming in delicate glass, you’re destined to crumble and fall.
