I evoke a distaste for air
when I dream and you’re there.
I have left a many people
but for you I do not even care.
I changed my life, my soul
for all under your control.
Countless nights on patrol
for nights that took their toll.
Coldness and confusion you
did what you obviously did.
Then when truth was revealed
your face you tersely hid.
No ocean could quench a thirst
that just went terrible to even worse.
From your lips I had difficulty
understanding why you would curse.
Terrible notions, you slapping me
for widening out my arms just to breathe.
I can tell of a tale many believe,
you were the type to make them bleed.
No matter how many times
I’d tried to find your smile.
You’d dig deep into tricks
making beauty so damn vile.
