Leaving Las Vegas

Its times like this, that I remember you ..
Like the time I finally figured out what the hell
You were talking about when you said I was
you're Elizabeth Shue.
Everything has become tangled, trashed, and
Our love has been choked up, snuffed out
and strangled.
These emotions have become some what
Of a danger... a little evil anger From a familiar stranger .
The memories play on repeat, again and
Songs of our distant laughter
Are now deafening echos of a love long lost
in my head
Snatched away from me,
As if by a theif, you'd been stolen
Searching for you, my eyes red and swollen

Poetic words of a life lost long before now
Just fucking wish I could revive this
So many perfect opportunities that went
Such a young life to have lost, Having never truly tasted.
Sweet flavors of your love which still linger
On my heart
Slurring words from my lips, black eyes
Swirling down into this deep, dark,
Alcoholic fucking abyss.
Yet this is a peaceful type of pain
The type one can only experience in the rain
Walking aimlessly down a dirt path,
Silently weeping, such is the depth of a soul
That can't seem to stop bleeding.
It's intriguing how much we can actually stand,
On our own..
Literally until we've broken, through the skin to the bone
Up are my hands, my white flag is waving. It
Like it's me this time that needs a little saving
God damn it, I just want My soul to stop breaking
Weakness becoming surrender and
Before long to be free
From this longstanding battle

That has all but killed me..
