You wanted your pain to die

I've lost count of how many times I've tried to kill mine

And now I've lost count of how many days it's been since the night

I heard how you'd finally killed yours

You laid dying

No one even knowing

Not until the next morning

Was it regret pouring from you too

Or just searing pain & sorrow

I bled too but my wounds closed eventually

And that hurts more than I can say because yours never could

You laid dying

No one even knowing

Not until the next morning

The ground beneath you ran red

Forcing so many to believe you're really dead

But some of us never will because of how we love you still
