This infection runs deep
Runs straight through my blood
I can’t keep it contained
And I find that even the thickest hearts
Can get burnt to a crisp
So I float away, float back to her
She rebuilds my heart with fake smiles
Then tears it down with one piercing gesture
Knocks me straight back to this painful state
My reflection in a blood-smeared mirror
Draws me near the surface of this pool of tears
And I break free, back to my home
Where I was raised knowing that our days are limited
As I look up to the stars at night
I cry, someone wipes the tears from my eyes
A tissue of sympathy
But I push it away
I need this now,
To know why I mourn
Why I cry
For someone that destroyed me
It must have been love
But its been burnt to crisp
I’m here waiting
For the ashes to wake
So I can take flight again

    General Commentsounds kinda suicidal, a love suicidal story, like he foudn true love, then it disappeared, it was a very big relationship, and when they broke, he lost everything. in which lead to cutting and crying.
