Dec 2014
Tattoos that stain and burn my skin
With words and images
Of who I could've been
              Should've been
              Would've been
If I hadn't met you

Dreams of those happy summer days
With wind to make me fly
To get lost in space
       Stuck in a daze
And then I see your face

I was coaxed by the lies of love
And smashed down by my own hand

I gave you all the keys to my secrets
And watched you set them all ablaze

My heart can no longer trust

Song lyrics that taunt and chain me
To all the wonderful times
                 I could've had
                I should've had
                I would've had

If I hadn't met you
