my voice is smoked out

strained from screaming

hoarse from crying out your name

but it keeps on singing your song

my arms are worn out

bleeding from bearing your cross

broken from trying to hold on

while you run away

but they still carry a torch for you

my eyes are red rimmed

swollen from weeping

afraid to look ahead

to see what's coming next

but they can't break a stare with you

my heart is battered

bruised from every fall

kept wide awake with nightmares

from this so called "love"

yet it still beats for you
