Smoke and Mirrors


Was it all smoke and mirrors?

That made your love seem so real.

Was it all a dream

or did you love me for awhile?

It seemed but a moment in time,

that you came into my life,

like a magician,

out of another space and time.

You came and you took my love,

magically changed my life -.

so that my days began and ended with you.

Your words wove about me,

like a spider’s web

and I could only see the good,

turning a deaf ear to the bad.

You filled my world,

with smoke and mirrors.

The smoke left a haze,

so my eyes couldn’t focus on reality.

Into the mirrors I stepped,

like Alice in her wonderland,

seeking your kisses and words of love.

While behind me the clowns were laughing,

knowing that you weren’t loving me.

Giving me the illusion,

like being in a fun house at a carnival.

Every day was a carnival with you,

but the dark thunderous clouds,

on the horizon loomed.

You were just fooling around,

out of the haze I stepped,

out of that world of mirrors –

to see the harsh reality.

Like when the night,

make lovers dreamy,

while the moonbeams,

created romantic gleams.

While I was loving you,

you were just fooling around

and while my heart was breaking –

those clowns just keep on laughing.

I was fooled,

by the world you created,

like some mad magician,

so sure of yourself –

surrounding me with smoke and mirrors.
