Life In The Goldfish Bowl

What you see is NOT what you get
Words that are said are acts of illusion
Tears that are spilled hide moments of joy
Friendship displayed is an enemy's ploy
Your support in the storm is a leaf in the breeze
What you expect is not what transpires
That momentary moment of satisfaction
Crushed in the reality of misdirection
Thief in the night that steals all your hope
Leaving you stranded, depressed and alone
It is not what it seems when first it appears
And when it is done leaves nothing but fear
