sweetness, do you remember me?
We met between the subscript and the superscript.
I fell in love with your lonesome addictions,
And the freckles in your eyes.
I fell out from the space between your arms,
And in your thoughts.
I'll run my hand over the curve on your chest,
Just touch me, touch me anywhere!

sweetness, could you light my cigarette?
Then I will burn down this web of lies
You breathe my air, and smoke it up
The smoke you're exhaling into my lungs
Makes me sick, just like your smile

Sweetness, can you understand my words?
You are shooting silver bullets at my shoes
Making me dance with you
Perhaps snap my back, like my heels,
But I will never ask you to cease fire
Because sweetness, you are all I'll ever have.
I would rather you bury me deep
Than forget about what we had.

Sweetness, will you ask questions?
It makes me sick when I think about
how much you must hate me sometimes.
I want your fawn eyes caught in my headlights
And I will give this, and a thousand more.
Crossing myself that I don’t bore you
Or these hideous words
Wake up, turn the other cheek.
In a softer world, you could be my friend.
In this softer world, I would hold your hand.
