Wake up, it's dark outside.

I bit my lip until it bled,
you bit your tongue until I left.
We went three days without a word,
now three days is less absurd.
We watched each dream with precision,
we'd have stayed, no sight or vision.
Dead outside, alive within,
I held your hand, and that was it.
A dream was all we ever were,
now darling, have some character.
You say you're done here,
over it.
I think you're stupid,
that was it.
A dream we both envisioned,
one we followed with precision.
But we've awoken now,
to this dark day,
we're both broken now,
and I have to say,
if I had ever known,
that a dream was all it was,
I'd have made d*** sure,
I'd have never woken up.I bit my lip until it bled,
