Where Our Eyes Meet


A stupid word called love

Let’s take it

Let’s break it

Because I don’t want it.

 What an idea to have

What a dream to chase

an empty embrace

it causes a lot of hate

that’s my fate

Can’t even have you

Can’t even hate you

And I can’t love you

So what’s left

But to ignore you

I felt all of it

Without even trying

And if everyone knew

and everyone cared

I’d still keep lying

Because It’s easier

If we just keep walking

Barely ever stopping

Except that one moment

where our eyes meet

in the middle of the street

right before being swept

off our unaware feet

struck by passing defeat

hit harder than love

to be face down on concrete

Not alive,  we didn’t die

But our shell shocked heads

Said we ought to be dead.
