people laugh and people cry
live their lives 'til it's time to die
loving each other until their ends
caring and hating and making amends
The stars above are shining
upon my smiling face.
You are holding me so tightly
I can hear your heartbeat race.
I fill the hearts of many
I make them act in dishonest ways
I hurt those who won't let me in
I am a parasite who uses My host to full extent
You're the only one I ever loved
no matter wrong or right.
You occupied my mind
in the day and in the night.
Half of me loves you
the other is not so kind.
I look at you and kiss your lips
so passionate we find.
at first you merely coveted my body
and so I willingly let you exploit it
when that wasn't enough, you asked for my soul
Since your death
my days have been longer
and yet non-existent.
I hardly ever dream anymore.
Do you ever question
the sweet words that I would whisper?
Did you wonder if I felt
the way I my eyes suggested?
I used to find comfort in your love,
now it makes me curl away.
Your hugs that used to seem so soft,
have rendered me afraid.
