Breath

Breath as fragile as dust

Margins fade into the rust

We make the scene as easy as

The losing cause it finds you in

 

What rakes you hard into the coals

What tears the skin across shards of shoals

And you laugh like it matters not

As your string of life undoes within

 

Temptation is a bitter word

Rejection the cloak of buried flirt

The feeling never went away

Just feeling like I wished you’d stay

 

It drives you hard unto your knees

It drives you until you cannot see

It drives your mind unto the brink

The blood drips slowly in the sink

The rain falls hard and you can’t think

The eyes are wide but they can’t see

The scabs and blisters on your knees

 

Rage is a voyage of the blind

Excess an endless, fruitless find

You walk into the roundabout

And find no exit in the despair

 

The cry that ravages your heart

The whispered call that makes you start

All your hope and dreams are mine

All she wanted was you to care

 

Temptation is a bitter word

Rejection the cloak of buried flirt

The feeling never went away

Just feeling like I wished you’d stay

 

It drives you hard unto your knees

It drives you until you cannot see

It drives your mind unto the brink

The blood drips slowly in the sink

The rain falls hard and you can’t think

The eyes are wide but they can’t see

The scabs and blisters on your knees
