Take What is Left of Me

Take what is left of me And give it to a friend My heart was never mine to hold Not even in the beginning You carved it out Of my chest Wore it as a decoration As you declared my love Useless Take my pride And rip it to pieces I am now a cruel…

Withered dreams lay at my feet In puddles of hopeless dreams When I step closer, they struggle away As if I were a disease I see them in the alleyways And across the street In empty shopping malls Where two paths meet And if I were to approach They’ll growl and hiss At my slightest…
