I Bleed Words Sometimes

Selfless love’s a myth

Every word of selfless love,
Every ache they cause,
I hear, and watch, and laugh and cry.
On the empty midnight street of my mind.

I've had it all,
More than I've asked for,
Much more than I ever wished.

It boils down to nothing.
The story begins with you.
The story begins with a facade.

And when the curtains are torn.
So is the past.
So is your lie.
So is my heart.
So is our tie.

I hear, and watch, and laugh and cry.
As I lie naked on the empty midnight street of my mind.

The empty room with a single light.
The empty box of memories.
The empty words of selfless love.

They stare at my soul.
They find nothing.
