we cheated love out of what it deserved from us.

sound of your heartbeat,

echoes, my love. echo on and on.

now her palms, they're shaking, and so curiously pressed

against your heaving chest. scream;

dear god if you leave me now, you've left me for dead.

desperately struggling to keep that beating here,

here for me, and only me. and if i'm forced to watch,

with my eyes so defined, if i'm forced to watch you run

away from what you feel now, then that fervent thumping

that beats over and over again in my head, it will slowly

drive me insane. then the cold hands that were hiding-

hiding so cleverly and made me quite so clueless,

they'll grip on and won't let go, and strangle my heart

leaving it in such an awful, bleeding mess on the table.
