Your Love Is My Pain

Your smile like razors
your kiss like knives
im drowning in your love
as i struggle to stay alive
i promised not to slice
and i still continue to do my part
but the cutts arnt on my arm
the cutts are on my heart
i didnt put them there
my hearts painted black from 
the darkness that it drains
it overlaps my loving heart  
as your love becomes my pain
as i bleed the pain in blood 
my heart begins to flood
its all gone with the sin
it leaked out through the scars
that are reopened once again.

-Spencer Coggsdale     dedicated to Luis Arizpe
