on sleepless nights i am well versed
and how it hurts
that i've forgotten what it felt like
to sleep by your side

and when you wept
and when you wept as i slept at ease
you harbored hate in your heart
and dreamed of joyous nights, our nights apart

then i saw you there on the bed we used to share
with feral eyes when i caught you by surprise

and I, had seen the way you looked at him before
and recognized his voice before I broke the door


so tell me if you've ever felt a love like mine
strong enough to make a sane man lose his mind

but then i saw your life force pooling at feet
spreading like the shade at sundown when we'd meet

and i don't know
how i could've done anything to hurt you

you said you loved me, but i could never know
you shone so brightly, i felt helpless and alone

so when you sunk in the shadows of your mind
i had to find another love
who understood
to hold me closer now
like you never could

and i turned around when you threw me to the ground
and ran to hide when you shot me in my side

and i, had never seen that look upon your face
and gasped for air when you held my neck in place


but why'd you spend the whole night picking through my bones?
tearing flesh that was more caring than your own?

and when you stood upon the chaos you had caused
did you really think you triumphed nature's laws?

well did you find your proof?
or do you still deny the truth?
