Steal Your Words
I massacred the afternoon
To the sound of rain drumming against parked cars.
I drenched myself in desperate colors for you.
I was dripping for your sympathy.
I wear this weakness on my sleeve.
I'd like to put you on. I'd like to wear you out.
Solitary day. Forgive me for the blood you shed.
City of night-Hear my footsteps.
They echo through these empty streets.
I've been haunting this apartment at night.
Closed lips, abandoned ships,
straightened with paper clips.
And I get nauseous when the light isn't right.
I listen faithfully when they illuminate for me.
I wear your greatness on my spine.
I'd like to steal your words. I'd like to give you mine.
Solitary day. Forgive me for the war I waged.
City of night-Hear my heartbeat.
It echoes through these flooding streets.
We can save ourselves from sinking.
