When the bitter end arrives, will we be at war or sadly, madly in love? Will we beg for one more night? Or will we have our bags packed and waiting at the door? When the bitter end arrives, will it be a finish line or a starting gate? Brass and pearl, or maggots and dirt? Bittersweet, or our just desserts?
When you didn't answer your phone I knew there was something wrong You'd been a wreck all week When it's unbearable, the more unavailable the world can often seem
When the bitter end arrives, will we be exhausted or will we toss and turn? Will we claw out our eyes? Or will we simply close them and let the sleep seep in?
When your bitter end arrived you could've at least chicken-scratched some clichéd note: "On the razor's edge," "at the end of your rope" "The bitter pills you just had to swallow"
When you didn't answer your phone, suddenly the last time we spoke was the last time we spoke What would I have said if I knew just how desperate the situation was?
But I know that I knew - such overstated clues You stopped eating, kept drinking, stopped showing up for work When you're alone, do you utter dying words?
Why'd the bitter end have to come for you? So sad, so soon When your bitter end came around, did you wonder how your sentence would sound? An exclamation or a question mark?!
