The Cutting Room Floor


The only things on the cutting room floor
Is my mind, body, heart and soul
Broken by you
 
Lots of blood-soaked tissues
Blood shed for you
 
Are blunted bloody razor blades
Carving your name
 
Are floods of uncontrollable tears
All wept for you
 
Are bent and torn photographs
Taken of you
 
Are videos made to be enjoyed?
But now not by you
 
Is the genuine love and compassion  
I had for you
 
Will be my lifeless corpse
Cut down by you
 
There are so many things on the cutting room floor
I cannot create an escape route
This is a video about you
