Remove the shallow flesh from my vessel,
See the inner demons with which I wrestle.
Drain the red water from my hollow veins,
Take everything until nothing remains.
Tormented by the manipulations of my own thoughts,
Forgotten emotions, my chest is hollow as my heart slowly rots.
Useless feelings die a little more each passing day,
Killing intimacy for the sake of happiness is the only way.
In the shadow of the dark I gladly stand alone,
For I know within myself I will always have a home.
Alone I leave my heart, but loneliness is not my friend,
The love of close friends is all I’ll need to carry me to the end.
So as you have your heartbroken time after time,
Remember that living a loveless life is not a crime.
