Atypical behavior
Expecting a savior
Easily disappointed
Quickly disjointed

Rapid replies
Simple demise
Shallow breathing
Forever grieving

Intensely ashamed
Incorrectly blamed
Sorrowful glances
Empty romances

Jagged edges
Broken ledges
Foreign tongues
Empty lungs

So fake, so cold
How bleak, how bold

Foreign languages we spoke
All the promises you broke

Every lie recited
And each cell ignited

Your lingering gaze
The always burning blaze

My never ending trek
To avoid an inevitable wreck

So oblivious; eyes closed
How hilarious; so composed

On the outside
There's a smile
Nothing to hide
At least for a while

It's easy to act nonchalant
Sure you're just fine
What is it we truly want
Alone, waiting for things to align

Because now the truth is clear
We're all searching for something real
Someone to protect us from what we fear
A place we don't have to pretend not to feel

Casually we breathe
Searching far and wide
Inside we secretly seethe
Wishing we had never lied

While it's me you haunt
I'm listening to the perfect cadence
More than simply what I want
Perfectly imperfect and shameless
