There is only one punishment for spies and liars,
A slow and painful death.
And my sweet, angelic wife,
Who bewitched everyone in my home,
From my men – even to my dogs,
Is the worst traitor of all.
But it seems I have fallen under her spell as well,
With every smile, every ridiculous outfit,
I want to hate her,
But instead, I’m yearning to hear,
Every silent lie that leaves her irresistible lips.
Only show them what I want them to see,
Never let them in.
That’s how I handle things.
I may have agreed to this marriage,
But I’ll never be his,
Never let him see beneath my mask.
But with every passing day,
It’s getting harder to fulfill my task,
I am falling in love,
With the man I vowed to betray.
