Slowly

 

It's dark at night and you're lonely,

So you go to sleep early once again.

You're scared at night so you show me,

The scars on your wrists in the rain.

The burden on my body weighs fondly,

Though the regret of your leaving remains.

My eyes only settle on you slowly,

When I find you lying lowly in shame.

 

That moment will forever haunt me,

Black blood bursting from your open vein.

Lying in a room I once found homely,

Full now of only regret and blame.

And holding your body coldly,

With fear and adrenaline rushing through my frame,

My eyes only settle on you slowly,

When I find you there soaking without shame.

 

You're gone, time moves on, you're the only,

Person that I've lost in this way.

Your shape, ever etched, never left me,

Your fire still dances with my flame,

I don't know when I will loan me,

My forgiveness for your passing in pain,

My eyes only settle on you slowly,

When I find you looking bony in my brain.

 

My eyes only settle on you slowly,

When I find you looking boney in my brain,

When I find you looking boney in my brain,

When I find you looking boney in my brain.
