Under the robes, beneath everything, it was always me. Tell me you adore me.
How could you, who understood me so well, make such a mistake? You've shown me your true self, and what I love was the lie, perfect lie, that's been destroyed.

I'm a man who loved a woman created by a man. Anything else simply falls short.
