When Prince Charming Turns Back Into a Frog

Spell ‘promise’ with your tongue against mine

Take my last breath 

so I don’t know it’s a lie

Destroy me in this moment of bliss

So every twisted memory of you I can cherish

I beg you, 

Deny my worst fears as being real

If you ever cared, don’t allow me to feel

This. This gnawing ache.

I can’t tell if this drowning is wrong

Please just let me know where I belong

Caress my wrist with the jagged edge

of our broken dreams

and I’ll excite you once more with the pain from my screams

My love locked, but you’ll forever hold the key

Swing life away without me
