Over Before it Dared Begin

Stage speakers and screams swallow all other sound,
Sea of arms, a look around,
One glance ensues a fade out,
Chuck Taylor’s and stud in mouth,
You’re there but sure aren’t in tact,
My pulse just consecrates fact.

To like them a little broken, here’s to looking in a mirror,
Your façade screams strength to cover fear.

It’s not the first job I’ve taken on,
But it’ll vanish as the dawn,
I’ll leave a part of me with you,
It will hurt, but I always pull through,
You may win them over, but it’s easy to see,
You’re broken, darling, just like me.
