I never thought I’d be the one to break your heart.
I never thought I would be the one to make you cry.
I never thought I’d be the one to make you say never again.
Cuz I love you more than anything in the world.
I never thought I’d be the one to make you deny loving again.
Build a wall around you, never let anyone in.
A wall so resilient a canon could not penetrate.
I never thought I’d be the one to put that bitter
taste in your mouth no amount of sweets could dissolve.
I never thought you would call me monster when
honey and darling used to pour from your lips.
I never thought we would end up like this: distant and apart.
So far from each other that breath moves slowly,
becoming foreign and cold. Cuz I love you more than
I love myself.
I never thought I’d see your beautiful green eyes turn purple from pain.
Bruising, seeping through your brain.
Blood weeping from cuts only love can shear.
A rugged sickle scoring destruction and havoc until all emotions disappear.
Cuz I love you more than life itself.
More than the air I breathe.
More than death’s desire for life.
I never thought I’d be the one to put a plastic
bag on my face and inhale until there was
no more you.
