Sleeping in our empty bed

Can't get your face out of my head

I think of all the things you said

And wonder if I'll wake up dead.

 

My words like razors on my lips

My rage like fire on finger tips

I feel my sanity as it slips

And I feel my heart beat as it rips.

 

Crying as  I sleep alone

In our silent, empty home

Distant laughter  cuts to bone

Through pallid skin as cold as stone.

 

Soon I feel too numb to care

I fall into an empty stare---

A broken smile is all I wear

It's getting way too hard to bare.

 

But then I think I hear the door

So I jump across our bedroom floor;

My tears start falling even more

And against my will they pour and pour.

 

Down the stairs I run to you

But you say there's nothing I can do

"We're over, done," you say, "We're through."

And I scream as my heart is ripped in two.
