Flat-lining Love 

You used to quiver with the thought of my touch;
now you never leave your side of the bed.
You would do anything just to feel the rush;
but now it feels the passion's stone-cold dead.

You used to come alive when the lights went out,
but now you can barely look my way.
You're as dry as a year-long drought; 
now we're fire turned to ashes in an ashtray.

My hands reach to hold you tight,
but you're going on another direction. 
Flying away like a loose kite;
no color in your now pale complexion.

There's no a hole in my heart,
and it's bleeding out the love.
As we continue to just fall apart,
I wonder if to save our history will be enough.

Flat-lining love turing from red to blue;
it's about to go into a comatose state.
My heart still beats and it does it for you;
you must save it before it's too late.
