Matt Young


As I lay here in the dark
I wait to feel your spark
My body’s lifeless on the floor
Waiting for you to come through that door
I look at my hands all covered with red
If only you knew these words unsaid
Light comes through the door above
It feels as distant as your love
I know now your not going to make it
but its ok for once I won’t fake it
You’ll look into my eyes and wonder why
As the tears build up you’ll start to cry
I’ll see you holding my head to your chest
And feel my body finally at rest
The scars go deeper than my wrist
As you cross another name off your list
Yet again you disappear
Leaving with answers unclear
Another sleepless night you’ll spend awake
Trying to figure out the mistake you didn’t make
Its not your fault Yet someone has to take the blame
I’m sorry I left you with a heart full of shame
