(Among) Us

I thought I knew you
I really do
I bet my life on your words
I followed you

We merrily went to the greenhouse
We watched the lilies grow
We fixed what’s down and broken
We had good laughs and fun

You suddenly went silent
You went down to mend a wire
You beckoned me to follow
You have set a perfect trap

Then everything went red
A knife pierced the back of my neck
Felt betrayed, angry, and shamed
Defeated with a laugh and a sneer on your face

Will I be able to trust again
My beloved pink friend
Sly impostor beware and watch
I’ll strangle you with lilies when the lights are out
