Darkness gets brighter  

Only to get darker than before 

I fell in love with a lie 

Foolishly, one more time  

I saw you kissing  

Someone that was not me today 

I thought it was a nightmare 

But I was wide awake  

First, I felt unexpectedly broken  

Then anger boiled over in rage  

Until I walked away in stark silence  

Even my errant thoughts darkened  

I will be long gone before you learn   

I outplayed … your deception
