How could you do this?
Who do you think you are?
Love me… then leave me
Escaping with a piece of my broken heart.
Like a shiny new watch
You parade me everyday,
Our hands and hearts in sync
Beating in harmony, even when you were away.
You showed me lust. You showed me passion
What a poisonous gift,
The venom spread to your heart
Then you snatched mine, lethally swift.
The second hand ticked out of time
The leather band bound tight,
You left with a soul-sucking kiss
My world swallowed by darkness, you took my heart and light.
Sometimes I look at that watch
Wrapped like a serpent around my wrist,
How could something so reliable and intimate
Inject toxins into my heart and now be finished?
Getting my fix
It never fails to give me the ultimate high.
As I submerge myself into the cool waters, my body becomes numb
Such an exhilarating feeling…
– Not to feel
I come to you from the darkest crevice
Vulnerable and lost
Hoping you can help heal my pain
The world sometimes blurs past me
No matter how long I stay clean
There’s something about you that pulls at my spirit
It may be the glorious warmth of the sun
Sending a light trickle of sweat down my neck
Or the gentle breezes
Tickling my skin so it tingles.
– God that feels good
Waves crash and my lungs burn with seawater
I am addicted to the taste
Its buzz lights up my spirit
That is sometimes swallowed by this dark world
And here it comes…
I am weightless
In this moment
I am invincible
My mind is clear
I am free.
You leave me as quickly as you came
I can’t help but smile as you push me towards the shore.
You energize me
The sunshine kisses my skin and spirit
Your song whistles through my mind as I return to reality
Your legacy dotted upon my arm
Reminding me that happiness is never too far away
