Collapsing Heart

It's about how easily feelings of respect, friendship, etc can be mistaken for love, often with embarrassing consequences

I turned to you to project my forgotten sense of love

I abandoned my senses to impulsive desecration

I have a lovely smile but she hates the rest of me

I think I love you but I feel so empty

 

I feel like I’m wasting more of our time darling

You wish for a friend, I demanded an answer

I looked within to my dark and hidden depths

But this dance has already been done to death

 

My head is all a mess

And my eyes are all ablaze

I can break myself into pieces for you

I’ve given myself to be betrayed

 

I hoped in vain for something more than fading respect

I begged for a new kind of mercy to ascend with you

But tonight I’ll sleep all alone

Drift away in the silence of my empty home

 

I spoke of passionate dreams, and the swear of bodies

A dismissal in response, and suddenly my world is in flames

I left myself to ruin, and I was left broken, ignored

There’s nothing left of my collapsing heart anymore

 

My head is all a mess

And my eyes are all ablaze

I can break myself into pieces for you

I’ve given myself to be betrayed

The End
