A broken heart looks better

Put down on paper

With your fucked-up idea

Of forever.

-

Taken with a grain

Of salt she

Downs another

Shot glass worth of poetry.

-

Absence makes the

Heart grow weaker

While distance makes

The outlook bleaker.

-

Wiping tears from

Her cheeks she

Downs another

Shot glass worth of poetry.

-

Wanting more and

Wanting less

She's tired of time

And loneliness.

-

Calming her needs and

Shutting him out she

Downs another

Shot glass worth of poetry.

-

Afraid of loss and

Afraid of her wanting

She pushes him away and

Ends up with nothing.

-

His words on the screen his

Face in her head she

Downs another

Shot glass worth of poetry.

-

She needs him here but

He went away

If only he knew then

Maybe he'd stay.

-

Her bottle is
