when love is a game of ‘smoke and mirrors’
who is the audience?
when will the masks fall?

there is no honour in hiding who you are
there is no respect in parlour tricks
there is no real pleasure in getting a ‘betrayal fix’

cast off lies and reveal the heart
true love will stay at your side
if you stay true to yourself

you owe yourself the happiness
give yourself a chance to be loved

for who you are
really are…
