Heart break and heart ache. Soothing and so true.

 

Shes insane, she wears her heart on her sleeve..

She smears the blood from her valves on every boys face now i don't know what to believe..

Her minds filled with dark shadows i can see it in her eyes

You know that she's a saint..i know she's the devil in desguise,

Just because you're set up doesn't mean you're put together

You put on a good show i admit..with a heart so cold it could change the weather,

I can see how a person like you could find every flaw in religion

You're a cardinal sin walking..I don't even know where to begin

 

 

Go to sleep now love and don't drown in your pillows

I hope your sheets turn to hands and pull you in the gallows,

I hope the thought of me puts a pain in your stomach

Cause i know the thought of us plays like a porno and makes me sick,

I can't control your actions but i can control how i feel

I know i'll find her somewhere..little Ms. "This can't be real"...

 

 

I've stood on mountain tops just so i could scream your name

I was padded up and ignorant trying to keep up with your game,

I should have known about you by the actions you displayed

But i was love struck and fucked up senses merely delayed,

Then i came to reality when the poison left my insides

Came back out of my fog and left it for you to decide..

 

 

And where did you go love?

Was it something i said?

Where are you now love?

Because to me..it's lost..it's dead..

 

 

Go to sleep now love and don't drown in your pillows

I hope your sheets turn to hands and pull you in the gallows,

I hope the thought of me puts a pain in your stomach

Cause i know the thought of us plays like a porno and makes me sick,

I can't control your actions but i can control how i feel

I know i'll find her somewhere..little Ms. "This can't be real"...

You are looking at a member of Generation X, the Grunge generation. I also, as a result, am familiar with Courtney and Kurt's relationship. It was bloody. I remember a magazine article showing large scratches all over Kurt from his woman only months before his death. I also like that you are comparing your ex? to Courtney Love. If you are comparing her to Courntey...she probably is not a good woman in your eyes? Kudos to being 24 and knowing this side of the Kurt Cobain story. I have a poem I wrote about the musician only 3 days after his death. I have not submitted it yet because I wanted to add a perspective from the present. Or who knows. Maybe I will keep it the same as the day. It felt like my generations hopes died with him that day.
