i’ve forgotten how to smile
as my lips curve upward there is nothing but cynicism behind them
the air that flosses through my teeth is stale and bitter
for i have turned stale and bitter
i used to be optimistic
but i’ve forgotten how to hope
my tears fall but i feel nothing but emptiness
my fingers and toes grew numb
for i have grown numb
i used to imagine a world where you and i could be together
but i’ve forgotten how to dream
in my world we were queen and king
but our empire has fallen
for i have fallen
i was so young when i fell for you
i didn’t understand i was falling
until i hit the ground
but now i’m buried in the shallow dirt
and you dance and drum on my spine
i let you break my bones
for my heart broke long ago
