I was always so good at selecting words To hurt rather than heal Busy premeditating verbal murder We should have instated a code of silence between us Instead of choosing to speak, every something was wrong forcing feelings, tiring ourselves out
Many times without a doubt, Shutting up might have saved us My fingerprints washed off your body Kisses wiped from your lips Inspection couldn't find a mark left behind Or proof of the time I spent inside you, beside you
With all the skin we shared, I'm scared You've taken back what I mistook as my own causalities spared, judgement impaired For what cause was I disowned? Are first loves forgotten?
Open words with a closing, to insight a battle Overhead glances invite free interpretations Jealously vows a way to get back at me suddenly It's over with no time to explain I was honest with someone, when honesty wouldn't work Again paths crossing, feeling secure Long enough to catch my reflection, rejection In a way you can say that everything in life Has an expiration date
Running out of breath Running to your rescue Signing to donate my heart Finding it's been rejected by incompatible blood types, Complications and misunderstandings
Close your eyes when your lips are covering my mouth Or you don't mean it. I wish some insight would have come to me Before self surgery You see, I wasn't the first to have torn into my chest To win you over But for me it is over and that is to say You won't be missed Wait, before you say good-bye, Let me take a picture to remember Not to meet you again in another life, or in another's body
