The Day I looked Deception In It's Face
But yesterday, he held the door long enough for Reality to step in. I hung my head, knowing what lies ahead. Lovingly and gently, my Friend stretched forth his hand and lifted my head towards Deception. With a heavy heart I let the nauseating vision fill my consciousness. When I couldn't take it anymore and my heart dripped with sorrow, I turned to my Friend.
But he did not say a word.
He cupped my face in his hands and looked me in the eye..........and smiled the most tender and reassuring smile. I wanted to tell him how sorry I am to have betrayed him, to have allowed Deception to bring me to the chambers of Fantasy and Escape. But Reality has caught up with me and now I see. I took one last look at Deception.......... and walked away.......hand in hand with my Friend, my first love.
