Poisoned Blood

How heightened expectations can have dire consequences for all involved

It was all once so golden and whole

It rose up like wolf's teeth and tore through my soul

The cold truth and the fires are dying

I'm barely out of the dark and now I know

What it's like to lose it all

Emptiness resonates but I'm wiser

Love and life conditions me to despise

I'll think of you, I wither and despair

And I know you couldn't even care

Blood shed and turned to poison

We could've lived forever

Rekindling fires but time grants me malice

Promises broken, golden heart turns to a poisoned chalice

The weary sigh of someone who should know better

My humanity left broken and severed

If only you loved me, we could've had it all

It all could've been so much better for us both

But you'll happily cast me to the dogs

Cast me to the dark, I lost it all

Hoping you'd join me in the fall

Blood shed and turned to poison

We could've lived forever

The End
