Smoke

Breathing in, breathing out. 
Breathing in, breathing out. 
One thing is wrong with this, 
because its not air. 
Breathing in smoke, breathing 
out smoke.
Having the time of your life, 
while on the other side your 
lover is bleeding.
With every breath in, every 
blow out, it's like your taking 
her fragile heart and throwing it 
against a concrete floor. 
The thing is, you don't even 
care.
You only do what makes you 
happy, you don't think about 
how it effects other people.
Oh it's just an act he says, she 
just wants me to stop, it 
doesn't hurt her that much, he 
says. 
But what he doesn't know, 
while he's having fun, she's 
bleeding, she's dying, she's 
crying. 
What he does know, he's got 
her so far fallen for him, she 
can't get out of his trap, he can 
do and say anything, and know 
shell come running back. 
What he needs to know, he's 
hurting her more than he 
thinks, he's the reason she 
bleeds, he's the reason she 
cries
What he needs to do, he needs 
to let her go and stop dragging 
her along
Her little heart can't take the 
pain, 
Breathe in, breathe out. 
Something's wrong with the 
picture. Cuz there's smoke in it, 
not loving air.
She is so far broken, her heart 
is like glass thrown against 
concrete floor, tell me how you 
fix that, you can't. He pushed 
her so far, so deep. Now all 
that's left is a body with a 
face..

    Very tragic, and very deep. The writing was beautiful.
