A Sudden End


Your heart is a weapon

With infidelity

And you may look O.K.

__from the surface

____of your skin

But you are not O.K.


I know it's a great world


____the handle


________your front door

Turning the knob



______you behind

It's all so




I know I

__can care less

____if you love me



__________am not thee only one

____________you love


__I'm O.K.

But inside I am dying

I don't want to


____or breathe


__coming over

____the strands of my body

______and the caring I once felt

________left me

I know nobody


____a "miracle"

But why did that rule apply

__to us?

My heart was an off ramp

Designed for you to leave

And an armored truck

__will stand

On the foundation

__of quicksand

The memories

__of you and me


______destroyed, and


__________look at me

I burry my head now

The world

__is all lost

And I may think it's grand

__to not give a damn

But I don't understand

__a thing

Now my heart is hollow


__is hard

My, I have a problem

I can't see what's beyond this

And I don't


____or think

In my attitudes

__that I carry around

There is no lost subject

__to be found

I close

__the door behind me

And walk out

__into the daylight

It was



______pretty day

________to me

But nothing was quite as beautiful

I can't stand this

__what's the look?

What happened to there


____a you-and-me?

No more 'phone calls



______things up

I will throw you out

__of thee life

____of me

Sit down in anger

Sit down and escape

With a pen in my hand

__I see


______single thing

And all of this detail

The surface

__of Hell now

No chance

__with a new


______with a new


I can almost say "it sucks"

In fact I can say more

__than the fact

____that "this is sucking"

I felt this before

But never like before

__is this

Now I know

__I need

____the surroundings

______of all

________in these meetings

To grab my out

__of my sheets

____of these pages

The paper

__and the pen

____hate me

The sorrow's not over

I brought this upon myself

When I decided

__to have sex

____with you

'Cause now what we've been thru

It's over

__how I miss you

But the trail back

__to you

____is tainted

______with your


Now I can't


____to see

Sharp edges of kitchen knives

The brim's boiling over

How hot is dear me?

'Cause love may have casted a spell

But thee overness is real

And now it's too late

__to dream

Where ever I may be

__is "forever"

The last time

__that this happens

____to me

In my studio

__early this morning

____I just


________get back

__________to sleep

I know there's

__a true love

____out there

But just out of reach

__for me

She must've changed her mind

__when she dug up my dirt

____and saw everything


________about me

And just thinking about that


______makes me feel that

________I do not



All this happens

__too much



But I can't care

__to change

____the past

The path we were on



______to an end


A sudden end


A sudden end


With me
