Heartlock

Two nights ago, I was shot.
A bullet sunk straight through the heart.
Tumbled and tore me apart
Before the start of the pain.
Intentions that drove me insane.
A carcass is all that remains.
Euphoria, short-lived inside this dying brain.

Undying, the face of regret.
Wishing that we'd never met.
When the wall finally fell flat,
I knew that I was in love's debt.

Vision was fogged. Calling away.
I can't turn back time.
Hope that sanity returns tonight.
Memories won't leave me alright.
Sight's been blurred by walls of wanting.
The yearning for love, still so haunting.

I lied. I lied to myself.
Thought that this would all work out.

I died today.
Wrapped hands around, and squeezed the life all away.
Charcoal, the heart, a hole of smoldering disdain.
Left my soul to rot with thoughts of all of the pain.
Reminiscent, memories, can't cast out.
With our final goodbye.
I watch reflections cry blood.

Always was wrong. Why did I stay?
I can't turn back time.
Hope that sanity returns tonight.
Memories won't leave me alright.
Sight's been blurred by walls of wanting.
The yearning for love, still so haunting.

Descending into pits, so black and cold.
Myself, exposed for lies untold.
I will burn away these broken wings.
I must move on, without you trailing.
