Yes, love

Yes, love

I say to you today

Damn your eyes

And everything I ever saw in them

Because you, in all your beauty

Ripped the freedom from my heart

Locked away in a vice

Out of sight

Where the dim candle may never see light again

And your lack of decency

To let it flicker and die

Taking the life out of

My beautiful experience, 'til it grows

Damp and cold

And these days are slow and old

Paralyzed by mixed metaphors

I stand, afraid and bleeding

And there you sit

Shedding a tear in your pseudo-tragedy

A modest smile and nod

To hide the relief

Of moving on

So damn your eyes

Because my body breaks

When I look into them.
