We believe that honesty is the best policy,
But we love to lie
And we fight
Just to get the blood pumping through clotted veins.
Because the most epic love,
Only lasts for never
And love is harder to feel than to find–
Taking an overdose today,
And hoping tomorrow will be better
Because they tell you it will be
And they tell you to be happy you’re alive.
But we only live long enough
To watch others fall apart
And watch ourselves become
She looks at me with glassy eyes,
As she mirrors my intentions–
Following, mocking my escape.
So, I sat there
And stared at her–
Ripples scattered across her face
And across my mind
that what was once alive is gone
