your laughter is my salvation
your beauty is the gleam in my eye
your distance is my condemnation
your apathy is the pain in my lie
you don’t know how to lie
and ii don’t know how to tell
whether you’re a scar in their heaven
or a kitten purring its way to hell
it keeps me awake
when ii’m already dreaming
keeps me alone
naked and screaming
in silence
an emptiness dense as your careless smile
sweet as your lips when you’re walking away
cold as the freedom that sweeps your enigma
like a word
we both heard
too fragile to say
