Beats For Me

I shouldn’t want this…
Beautiful illusion,
Confused reality,
Wonderous lust…
Balled into a constant reminder of pain…
Of impossibility…
Of disaster.

What gives you the right,
To inflict such torment,
Across my beaten heart?
What gives you the right,
To form a hurricane
And watch, smiling,
As it rips apart the pride I had built.

Why do you need to lay me in your bed of sins,
And strip me of my thoughts?
Only to leave me the following morning,
With nothing but a smile…
To remember you by.

I am tired of this dream,
Tired of this pretending…
Your face may lie,
But I hear your heart…
And somewhere deep down…
It still beats for me.

Artist's Description

I don’t think
confusion
expains it,
but nor does…
Unrequited Love.
