Once Upon a Time, We Faded Blue
by Andy Leggett
There is a darker shame
Hidden behind this perfect smile --
Behind this perfect lie
There is a deeper sorrow.
Beneath this pallid frame
The truth belies this pretext you call a life --
All your feeble delusions dissipate
And leave you with no comforts in which to hide.
Your haunted eyes confess
What your happy mouth denies --
The knowledge of this dawning horror
Shows itself through the windows of your eyes.
