One At A Time

One at a time love remains lifeless

one at a time i become so numb

one at a time to these fears,

I succumb

one at a time life becomes harder to live

one at a time love becomes harder to give

one by one no one cares

one by one no one is there

if you look through my heart,

one at a time, you will see one more tear

one more skin-hacking incident,

one more time, what is the reason?

Is it the season,

the flood coming,

the one that puts out the fire inside,

is it that i lost the key,

the one that opens up my heart?

should this even start?

one day at a time,

I fall apart

one day at a time i fade a bit more

one day, i fear,

i'll be too far gone to even notice...
