ashes fall as I drop to my knees
the cigarette of life burned too short
and beings to scorch my tar lungs
I try to light another
the white lighter's out of fuel
and I begin to smother
I am the rat
you are the snake
wrapping me in a warm embrace
before devouring me whole
I may write more to this.
Forever doesn't mean
my hand you'll always hold
forever means
there's a part of me
that you've stole
written in 2017
It's easier to pretend you ain't real
imaginary friends are easier to let go
I just don't know how to feel
you never had the nerve to let me know

I opened myself to you like a flower in bloom
trusting you to mend my soul
but I let you in just a little too soon
leaving my heart blacker than coal

Kiss me sweetly and never let go
say you love me and mean it
but you left me alone, trapped in limbo
I knew you could never commit
I just recently got dumped by someone I loved and trusted very, very much. So, this is how I express this in a healthy manner.
Sunday goodbyes are hardest to say
but Love, we'll speak another day
week spent missing you
I promise we'll make it through
so, lets dry our eyes
and say our Sunday goodbyes

— The End —
