Staring into your eyes, 
you see me as I appear alive. 
dead in my skin you sink deep in my veins. 
feeling this aching chest pain, 
piercing through my so called heart, 
I fear that this is a never ending battle in me. 
falling towards you in all necessary ways, 
I am the fallen one who is captured by you. 
torn by my own mercy, 
I cry for you to feel it too. 
may be you do? 
may be you don't? 
what you feel is something that’s unseen from my eyes. 
they're open though they don't see. 
the love-shattered between us, 
my heart beats slowly, 
I am cold and ruthless, 
though you say you want me still.
