Happy Endings

Wood splinters and bloody knuckles
Obscenities that echo through this booming silence
Furrowed brows staring at a dusty floor
Welcome to the world of non-existence

I’m a ghost for your gaze to look straight through
My palms itching to slap the indifference off your face
As I pick at the scabs of my scarred and re-wounded heart
Wondering if your vacant eyes will light up at the carving of your name

Blood-letting, apocalypse warning, my neuroses turn you on
You always seem to miss the prophecies etched in my skin
As your fingers own my hair, pulling me down for dark favours
In violent kisses like fuck equals forgiveness

In the sadism of your hands I forget this is love
Bruises marking the lines of your amorous affections
My mangled heart clutching at meaningless apologies
Desperate for a “beauty and the beast” ending
