no longer afraid
to live without you
you think I’d fade
but what would you do
such convenient sight
you are always right
pick another fight

knives cut both ways
I’m not the only one
cutting flesh these days
cut me then you run
bleed it out this time
wounds I will not bind
keep them to remind

was there a time
when I was anything
may be that time
is the killing thing
once held out of fear
bought it back with tears
he’s no longer here
