I wonder if you’ll walk in circles all day
If your world falls apart
will I be ok
will you be ok?
He loved to collect beautiful things
But he lost them
lost so many good days
I wonder if it hurts you to hurt me
I lose sight of seeing so much
I bet the last of my life savings on us
After 3 months
I brush everything under the surface
everything you did to hurt us
I tried every remedy
And couldn’t cure us
remember the last time we touched
when you could draw my body freehand
cure my headaches
with a touch of your hand

lead foot, no breaks
blurred lights
driving fast
past neon signs
you feed me lines and lies
you feed me anything old
And nothing new
I’m full of beautiful lies you created
To avoid the truth
I hate to give up, but can’t stand to lose
I’ll linger her for awhile
Like the scent of my perfume

your gone nothing will get thru to you
haven’t learned when to turn the clocks back
have yet to give up on anyone
who fights the day like you do
time took advantage of my open arms
I hand you a golden spoon
You stir up your bad habits
like a snake you charm me
into forgetting you latest mistake
you’ll miss me today, you’ll hate me forever
I’m rare like a white rabbit
you tell me your stomach turns
and you can’t look at your reflection
I lose this game either way
I bet on the fastest horse
lost my money,
lost more of my youth
Ran away just like you
You told me
I suffer from a swollen heart
you conjure up memories
that tore us apart
from empty voids you don’t remember
you collect beautiful things
prone to false starts
shatter innocent girls in pieces
like porcelain
you sharpen soft hearts
you showed me oblivion
there’s some times I spent with you
I choose to live in, to treasure

You collect beautiful things
you steal songs
from beautiful birds when they sing
you collect beautiful things
picked the last of the English roses
ignore the pain the thorns bring
You collect beautiful things
From movies
You remember only beautiful scenes
we used to talk about falling dreams
We'd comfort eachother
through nightmares
with dark endings
you jump from small planes
don't use windshield wipers when it rains
destined for a crash landing
a love like ours is neverending

You wound me up like a spiral staircase
Predictable like my weekdays
Fluent in enticing my reactions
I forgave you of toxic infractions
You could draw my body freehand
I sunk into you like quicksand

We were a strange kind
your mind ignited mine
we grew on eachother like a fertilized vine
& crashed and burned before our time

ours is a tale I long to rewrite
let ink spill out, 7 chapters in a night
regretting words I hissed in spite
forgiving ourselves for ending the fight

I'd start back before I knew your name
slip into to a less polluted time
before I cried after drinking red wine
back when our souls were intertwined

before contracts of our destiny were signed  
before my heart was forced to resign
once upon a time,
I was yours and you were mine

She exuded an east coast essence
She was dripping in party girl pearls
Her looks weren't her only weapon
She was closer to heaven than most girls

She smoked outside, all Bambi eyed
Decadence running through her veins
The one she loved so tragically died
She left claw-marks on his remains

If you looked deep into her eyes
She'd forever be your muse
She was a beautiful enigma
A shot of your favorite *****

She could predict your future
Along with tomorrow's news
Suitors tried to consume her
But none of them sparked her fuse

No one discovered the depths
Of her beautifully abstract mind
It takes a certain hunger
To conquer a spirit so unrefined

Tonight she makes an entrance
One like your never seen
She's chain-smoking, and ego stroking
Surrounded by local fleas

She has them wrapped up in conversation
They're hanging on to her every word
To find someone more charismatic
You'd have to scour the entire earth

She's gods proudest creation
She's critically acclaimed
A coastal variation
In an ocean of the same

My mind was on holiday
It couldn't quite take me far enough away
To escape your moral decay
I was always lured with bait
It took a decade to turn to hate
I'm sorry I left the party
I gazed into your eyes and saw tomorrow  
Only time will tell
If I broke the spell
It's not easy to leave you
In your rendition of hell

She said;
Once I heal from all these chemical burns
I'll exude forgiveness
You'll be impressed by my emotional stability
And my lack of vulnerability
I'll be such a gentle *****
You lose sight of when our roles switched
I have another dimension to my soul now
All the knives are out of my throat now
All the stories are rewrote now
It's impossible to detect the dishonesty in my voice
