Forever in a day, my heart is slowly fading away.
A victim to time i cant hold my tears any longer.
Slice my cheeks and burn a hole through my soul.
Scorned by my own follies.
Victim of my own misdirection.
Let me drown in a calm sea, floating among red poppies.
Let me sink.
Gently close my eyes, put a flower in their place.
A reminder of what they lost in their blindness.
Deafened by the screech of your silence,
And tormented by the absence of your violence.
Hand me a blade,
The one to you i gave, in my misguidance.
And i will place it along side me,
My open grave, a tribute in honor of the memories i have slayed.
The friendship i have betrayed, the trust i have mislaid.
Watch it decay
Tie a bolder to my strength and drop it in the ocean.
Wait till i am colder. older. forgotten over and over.
Then let the tide regurgitate, return me.
Place your pain in the cart and i will carry it on my shoulders.
Pull me into your dreams, but only as a bystander.
But don't misplace me
Don't forget you misguided me
With the feelings that you hide from me
The key you handed me
Opened the door to my felony.
I believed you
And sinned unintentionally.
