I Can't Speak

These marks upon my skin 

Refuse to fade away 

The devil's in the details,

Isn't that what they say?


This devil isn't hiding 

Not staying in the dark

He'll cut out all my heart strings

And then feed them to the sharks


And I can't speak 

Without you near

As if my world can't turn

Without you here


And if you could 

Just stay a while

You'll break my heart

I'll make you smile


There's nothing left

That I haven't said

My heart's still beating

Though it's dead


If it's all over

Just tell me this

Why did my death begin 

With your kiss?

The End
