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
