I am explosive You stupidly take it Ripping away at you Shredding skin Shattering bone Battering you With harsh words Wounds slightly open I pour salt into the cracks of long forgotten mistakes A life sentence Lived on borrowed skin As I continuously wound you Again And again I held you up But I needed holding But I held you up instead I will kill you slowly for this I will rip your skin from your body Only to heal it with kisses Fire surrounds me Licking my skin lovingly The electric blue of your eyes Amongst the bloodshot Keeping anger in Searing me This is beauty to me I am explosive There's nothing you can do for it So hold on to what I was As that girl won't be here long She let you get away with everything Inspiration turned to shards Sharp as razors She's no longer here Do you not see I kicked her out The moment you tasted infidelity
