Dust berths from the depths of my lungs
And with it, the serum of my being
I am a metal machine whose cogs have rusted
And once doused in water wishes never to have trusted
I now see the light which melts the shame away
Misery and angst heed my love another day
Although the blood is fresh at the tip of the spade
My heart beats again, I am no longer dismayed
The heart is aching
when you break it
The heart is beating
faster when I see you
The heart is hurting
a lot when you leave
The heart is screaming
out for help
The heart is crying
when I'm alone
The heart is craving
your sweet, sweet love
The heart is yelling
please come back
The heart is loving
you to the moon and back
The heart is missing
the memories we have
The heart is living
when I am with you
The heart is dying
now that you're gone
I awoke with a start
to the silence of no beating heart
lying there underneath my ear!
I wanted to choke down my fear
yet a scream was about to unleash from me
when suddenly your beating heart broke free
and made me realize it had never really stopped--
my ears were all plugged up and when they popped
the sound came through at last so loud and clear--
"lub dub lub dub lub dub"... sigh...so precious to be able to hear!
I'm not okay, but if somebody could even bother to look past my smile and ask, I would lie and say I'm fine because that's what I do. i deal with my problems by not dealing with them at all. I hide, I run, I lie. My mind has always gotten the better of me and let me tell you, it's such a bully to my heart.
Your love was suffocating.
Your hands would contort my body,
Making my flesh pulsate and spine tingle with each grasp.
Your fingers left marks on my skin like blotches of blush on a flushed face. Colors hidden under dull sweaters, my fingertips found them throughout the day to remind me of those secrets you've harshly whispered in the dark.
Your voice was sharp,
for even when you were quiet I could hear its power in your eyes. One look in my direction and I felt frozen. Your eyes were a warm brown but they turned my blood cold.
Your love was so suffocating,
it killed me.
No more fighting these streets
Clearly I can see and I can be anything that I wanna be, see y'all dnt know where Ive been and you've never even lifted a chin, but tell you what I'm going to do and give you people a sneak preview of me and my recovery
