The Faux

Smiles kept your fangs hidden, but only for a while

Bridges were built between us with platitudes made of sand

Washing away with the flow of tears which was inevitable

As the truth came to light that it was all a mirage

Nothing but smoke and mirrors, posed to appear like the real deal

Tread lightly for the masquerade ball has come to an end

The disguise has been ripped away and your identity revealed

Now the sentries are gathered in a circle tight

They are here for your banishment from this place

Vines rise forth from the ground to serve as your shackles

As you are led through the gates which are being drawn closed

The way into the inner sanctum is sealed to you forever

Beware the guardians and keepers of this place

Let this serve as your warning, for they will not be as gentle as I.
