it mattered when we smiled together; it mattered more when you let go and we cried alone;
my love went unnoticed until it burned away, and then you clambered back only to face my wrath;
i wonder if you had more to say, if i should've listened when you came back;
tonight, my breaths are coughs, and you weep, holding a knife stained with my blood;
then i see a woman, standing behind with a gun pointed at your skull;
i want to tackle her and scream foul words, but my eyes close
and i never see you again.
