playing games like I was your personal puzzle
I let it multiply, scatter and divide
you took the fractions of my thoughts like pieces of a puzzle
and you let them out like blood drawn
I let you amplify the sound waves that caressed my thoughts
let you into the dirty secrets I kept in my locket
You broke my wings, you smashed my fingers
you sew my mouth shut to a sweet whisper
but what did I give you?
nothing, I gave you a dull roar and a kiss on the lips
you let me in too far.
