3 AM

It's three o'clock in the morning

And I can't feel you breathing

Next to me. The night is cold

When the shadows cross the threshold.

Simple tears shed for pointless

Hours in my heart's reminisce.

I am two years back and one year

Forward. Another night to face my fear

Of you. The empty space you once filled

Is bleeding. Don't you remember how you killed

Me? Lying to keep me safe and sound,

But you didn't know the truth I had found.

Though time is gone my blood remains

On your hands like lipstick stains.

In my chest you've left your mark.

Can you blame me now, for fearing the dark?
