Your Salvation, Not Mine

Your heart carressed mine
by the very moment we met
- I stepped back
didn't want to feel.

Like a used piece of cloth
soaked in oil and betrayal
you hung at my soul
stuck like a scar.

Everywhere I walked
I had to remember
- those dark words
- those hidden intents.

Even in my bed
my safety, my rest
you watched over me
like the shadow of darkness.

I couldn't live
breathe, exist
with your bony fingers
strangling my mind.

And so you had to die
I demolished your being
for me to go on
we couldn't stay together.

    if someone with bony fingers is
    strangling your mind, yeah, go ahead and demolish...

    this is a great one
