den's song

there was a time when
i lived for you  
broke bottles  
hid in snow dens  
i created  
sleeping, wading  
wasting away  
flesh and bone  
uneaten  
slept awake
 
there was a time
i lived for you  
barely breathing  
but . . .
heart flew  
upon an open wound  
 
there was a time  
i'd give you  
every single smile  
even if later on
i was dead inside    
hiding in bathroom stalls  
hating my own  
harpering solitude  
 
i'd still live for you  
your kiss , brown eyes  
those times you held me tight  
just to wake and dream  
“i love you , i miss you”  
 
my heart could live upon it  
my life could depend
