Crocodile

Even when he lies
He says
I'll be back in an hour
I shrug it off and
Take a shower

Many hours later
He strolls into the house
I sit waiting like a mouse
Look into his eyes
Already know he's fried

Even when he lies
He says
I smoked a little weed
His anthem his creed
Saluting the visible bloody vein

Even when I lie
I say
I'll love you forever
Float over like a
Magnetic feather

When he reaches for my hand
I should have ran
He touches my skin
I know he wants in
My salvation sin

Even when he lies
he says
I've got some frills
Shows me a few pills
Feeling a scared rush thrill

Even when I lie
I say
You know I'm gana save you
He gives me a smile and says
Maybe after while crocodile

Even when we lie
These awful swimming lies
The proof of truth drowns

We are not in that place anymore. Sometimes it can be right smack in your face. A mutual acknowledgement of faults. It can be as simple as not making a change because you just don't want to. Not yet. But time moves on and kids come along and there is no other choice. Lines are drawn and you are ready for the war. Either change or you can go be miserable by yourself. Long story short - he changed:)
