You take lives,
as easy as you give,
You’re filled with so much,
Yet so empty within.
You’ve danced your way in
and out of me,
but i know that one day…
You will never come back.
You’re recognized
for the good you have done,
and are punished,
for the bad you have caused.
We never stop to think
how important you are,
but when we do,
you’re just a pain in the gut!
I trust that you will always
be by my side.
but i know …
that the trust…
will be lost
