This Deep

The first lie you ever told me was, “I love you”.
I never believed that it was true but I believed you wanted to.
My mistake was letting it slide.
I never imagine that was the first step.

I know now that it was all for what you wanted in return-
you knew I wouldn’t entertain your fantasies if you told the truth.

Your manipulation was poison but you wrapped it like a treat.
I couldn’t see that until you exposed every part of me.
I was shocked because I had let it get this far- I dug such a deep hole, I couldn’t see pass all the dirt.

It was so easy to let myself get this low.
The hard part is getting out the dirt, cleaning myself up and letting you go.
