I wreck it all

i wake up in a puddle

of your tears

next to your door

that stands wide open

begging me to come in

i wreck it all

my body aches with every promise

you have ever made

promising to heal

what you have broken

i wreck it all

my heart longs for you

to hold it;

your cold fingertips

feed it lies

i wreck it all

my mind runs wild

to comprehend

the lines you

sketched out for me

i wreck it all


there's nothing left here

in the void you abandoned

where my love freezes

to the ground

i tell my heart to

wreck it all
