  • Today I took an x-ray of myself
    transparency is never what it seems
    searching for a glimpse of a soul
    hoping to discover the root of my dreams

    Life comes and I just keep living
    waiting for that flat-line, Death
    Torn Muscles, Ripped Seams, Broken Bones
    None compare to a broken heart, last breath

    If only you could have seen
    The true beauty was underneath
    then maybe we would still be
    My ship's hull, hole, grasp for air as I sink beneath

    Never did get that kiss
    the last one, bliss
    opened my mouth, expecting your tongue
    Already gone, you were done
