Painted flesh - I find it trendy
Tried to know what effects it had on me
Since my thoughts are full of you
I even forgot what closure meant

I never intended to stay away
But oftentimes I get enraged
Maybe being together buried itself
With its own bravery like what you've said

I guess it was a mere diversion
"I shall make you a flavor of mine."
That's when I'll disclose what isn't clear
Or whether I'd get chosen in the coming hours

In my thirst I found you were earned
And I tried to forget what the occasion was
My words are echoing yours and they're favorites of mine
They can't disappear in the vastness between us

You know these inaudible screams
Shall be heard from some pasts
Even if we can never keep up
With the rushing of our companionship

I then held this emptiness close
Even honored it as if it were dear sin
Maybe staying together hinders itself
From rising from its zenith like ourselves

You left your wings on the pavement
So I counted the feathers
Which are equal to the number of steps
You took backwards away from worth

That star above and its peculiar shine
Have been addictions of mine
Like the way you have been unfamiliar
With a carnal zenith that doesn't know shame

Parting commandments won't stabilize aims
It tames all of them sane
Reputations don't qualify us to reunite
Because you don't even know how to own

I can't reveal what this is causing me
Even if these tears are concrete proofs
Of that zenith's district, of that brazen hurt
That I do not want but stays the same
