Sat here contemplating on how things should have been

My heart was tired of waiting and bought into the dream

I understood the path was blind the end was still unknown

Your words grew quickly in my mind the only path was shown

I took each step in trust and faith you led me hand in hand

I was headed for that special place and thats all i understand

Then you turned out all the lights and left me in the black

Filled my life with sleepless nights as you took those words right back

Replaced them with excuses made that never bled so true

So as i watched my story fade the anger pushed me through

I played each and every moment straight i never lied to you

You played a game turned out fake as none from you was true

I trusted you completely i believed that you were real

I never thought you would treat me as badly as i feel

I followed you to this place as i believed your true

Then you ran away without a trace when i told you i loved you

"Your words grew quickly in my mind"...something that so often leads to expectations that are never met. You've titled this "straight" but I really felt the "fake" & betrayal. Nicely expressed.
