“Hide your eyes and hide your tears”…

Catching her reflection,
in the dirty window pane…

Not recognising the woman,
the sad image contains…

Eyes just blankly staring,
not giving any clues…

Of the insanity behind them,
or the weapon that she used…

Eyes once full of promise,
of innocence and hope…

That her actions tore apart,
leaving behind two empty holes…

Entry points into her soul,
which is now so dark and black…

Too late to make a difference,
too late to bring him back…

As she paid the price for flying,
too close to the abyss…

For the mistakes she made and
the venom in his kiss…

She knew it from the second,
that she saw his eyes…

And she melted in the moment,
falling headlong for his lies…

But as he ascended to heaven,
her brain went into shock…

Beginning a downward spiral,
one that she could never stop…

Leaving behind this broken shell,
becoming numb to any pain…

Without the strength to carry on,
or try to begin again…

Now she sits there staring,
blankly through the rain…

As the condensation gathers,
on that dirty window pane…

Remembering how she killed him,
but never explaining why…

Or regretting her evil actions,
that kissed his soul goodbye…

“But she is the sharp pain in your chest”…

Did you feel the lightning…
As it struck your heart…
The moment that you saw her…
Right back at the start…

Did she infect your mind…
Was she your only one…
Did she become your universe…
The stars, the moon and sun…

Did you fall deep for her…
Head over fucking heels…
Allow your soul the freedom…
And all your heart to feel…

Did she become your everything…
A simply overwhelming obsession…
Your morning, noon and night…
And your sinful dark confession…

Were her words so powerful…
That you forgot who you were…
Becoming a different person…
Where reality became a blur…

And was that amazing feeling…
Worth the price you paid…
As it all quickly fell apart…
And memories started to fade…

Opening up the empty void…
With nothing that can replace…
The feelings of excitement…
That once lit up your face…

As you sit there wondering…
How the fuck to carry on…
Without all the distraction…
Without her sinful song…

As in pure desperation…
You pushed it all away…
Wanting everything or nothing…
It had to be your way…

But now you miss the lightning…
That once struck your cold, cold heart…
And the moments shared with her…
Right back at the very start…
