I gave you everything,
My heart on a string.
I guess you'll never know.

Without a single touch,
I lost so much.
I guess you'll never know. 

The tears I'd shed,
For the sad liquid red.
I guess you'll never know.

Unable to see,
my conspicuous glee.
I guess you'll never know. 

Bruises and scars,
my carved memoirs.
I guess you'll never know. 

Brutal fights,
Caused sleepless nights. 
I guess you'll never know. 

Pain so immense,
Death by pretense.
I guess you'll never know. 

Self-loathing and disgust,
Both heavy and robust.
I guess you'll never know. 

The plans I had,
Gone sour and bad.
I guess you'll never know. 

A love so strong,
Misleading and wrong.
I guess you'll never know. 

Occupied sheets,
By lovers obsolete.
I guess you'll never know. 

An incurable itch,
Desperate yet rich.
I guess you'll never know. 

Constant thought,
Fucked and distraught. 
I guess you'll never know. 

Drugs and pride,
Ambiguous suicide. 
I guess you'll never know. 

Brooding regret,
Unforgettable debt.
I guess you'll never know. 

The stench of despair,
A faithless prayer. 
I guess you'll never know. 

An endless abyss, 
Of ignorant bliss.
I guess you'll never know.

Darkness and pain,
A light slowly waned.
I guess you'll never know. 

Inevitably dead,
When signed in red.
I guess you'll never know. 

My love was real,
Despite how you feel.
I guess you'll never know. 

A knife to the spine,
Betrayal so sublime.
I guess you'll never know. 

A red road,
Where red flowed. 
I guess you'll never know. 

Relentless regret,
I'll never forget. 
I guess you'll never know. 

A surprise ending,
With love unbending.
I guess you'll never know. 

What could have been,
Had you not chosen him?
I guess I'll never know.
