7.1.16 // #8 – hint: it’s in-between the lines

we painted our faces well (dear)
they believed the smile (honey)
did we fool them? (sweetie)
did we fool each other? (lover)
damn right, we fucking did
one happy family
then off you go
to new lipstick and new plastic
let’s not fool ourselves:
we weren’t built to last

do you love me? (no)
will you leave me? (i’m sorry)
just one more time (again and again)
maybe then we’ll feel
much closer than you do
in red rooms with little deaths
fooled each other into thinking
“i love you”
we were invincible, sure,
we just weren’t immortal
