To get some rest, acting wise

I lie awake, try not to cry

then watch as my bleeding heart dies,

scavenging birds into it pry

.

I left the room, with flowers that

you said you liked before now what's

the reason why you don't feel bad?

I don't look back, lest I grow guts.

.

Then I look sideways when I cross

safety first I heard is a must

then I pass doors and I pass stores

and I pass out from breathing dust.

.

The blackened wires behind my eyes

know not how our 'true love' expired

they tell the truth, their truth is lies

wrapped and disguised in pure satire.

.

Fly as they may, explore the skies

then get so numb and somewhat tired;

these waterfalls on our burning fires

They rarely tried, I really tried.
