Smoke and Mirrors

Regina Puckett

So many of your promises were lies and all too soon broken

And all of your words of love should have remained unspoken

When my spirit was stripped of everything that made it soar

I have to stop and wonder what any of it was really for

Was it all just a silly game of let’s for a moment try to pretend

That this smoke and mirrors’ pallor trick will never end
