i swallow hard
because i know
that what comes next will hurt
(you more than me)

i bite my lip
to try to stop it from shaking
the teeth have broken the skin
and the blood tastes cold to me
after all
those nights you kept me warm
i'd hold my breath just to hear you sleep

i must admit i saw it coming
the air between us
had gotten harder yet to breathe
i'd run away if i could help it
but i can't remember to forget your face


you can say my heart has changed
but it's my will you've beaten down
i'd kiss you now
but I fear my caustic tongue
would only serve to salt your wounds

you are as beautiful as ever
yet i'm starting to resent your smile
because it's killing me to say this
but I'm dying inside to leave

it's a place we've never been
it's a waste to keep it in

it means little to you
but the world to me
