Never mind the ink blot
On my mouth
When the words I try to speak
Only break my heart open
Only negate my dreams some more

I believed in beauty once
I believed in the sunrise
I believed in dolphins, and magic
And in you
We believed in the sunrise.

Now there's only
The blood under your fingernails
There's only the ink
Staining everything I wished
Everything I hoped for

Do you remember the heart you gave me?
The one full of crazy schemes and daydreams?
Well, I'm sorry
But it's broken into pieces now
Since I slammed it against my dreams.

wow, it's a beautiful piece, but the last line confused me and i don't really understand it. perhaps there are too many hidden meanings for me to follow but it's beautiful nonetheless. we don't have to understand great poems to know we've seen one, right? (:
