You strike me down with contempt
A mindless pawn in your emotional games...
And I can't help myself
From drowing in your eyes
While my crooked mind wanders the empty lands
Behind that smile...
And when you kiss me deeply
I feel that emptiness
It's vastness like the chasms of hell
Swallowing me up
Sucking the energy from my being...
When the time comes and you hold me in your arms
I am a dried husk of bitterness
That crumbles like ash
And blows away....
