Pour This Salt Unto My Sores

These feelings and thoughts that I should not have
Are controlling the body and mind I once had.
I cut myself open just for you
Showing myself that was once true.
I bring it close, the blade that is my end.
My open wounds I had hoped you would mend
Bleeding me dry until all I see is your face.
Without you my heart has no place.
So as you read these words say to me goodbye
For it is now my time to die.

i liked a girl and she fooled around with my cousin, even though they both knew i had the biggest crush on her. so this was me saying goodbye because i felt like dying
