you follow a pattern
you prep us
version after version, we're all the same clone
you're never alone
but we fear it
behind those brown eyes are secrets
hidden deep in the void beyond the next universe
you'll never give it up even if you had a gun to your head
you deserve a gun to your head
behind those hands are necks deep in your affection
behind those lips are lies
you didn't do it on a whim
first impressions are almost always false
you didn't know they were a sociopath until they became your world
and split you in half in the middle of the night
the stages of grief set in early
mourning who you once were
there is no acceptance
"you adapt to the love you think you deserve"
you weren't worth the chaos
You sucked us in like a vortex but there is no other side
so we're being damned for an eternity
and you walk among the free.
