laughing tearstrace our mapof happinessdid you know there were types?I know ofonly one kindwith you
on the other side of the worldyou hold me in your heart as home, your north starI sit here hoping you never returnI once held your name so precious in my mouth, saying it only with tendernessit took me three tries to remember it todayhow cold, to love a woman like mewho only loved you once
another new dayI find myself freezing in another airport loungeface against the cold glasswatching the endless lights dancing in the distancethey warm the heart - flickering, fading, flaring up again...I place my wishes for you on them - love, joy, peace, time, space, bliss...somewhere a voice is callingbreaking through the memoriesit's time now to fly away again.
wait until she leaves youyou will learn the names of all the gods in this universeas you learn to scream hersin a hundred different ways
wait until she leaves youwhen you wake up to a life drenched in grief, limbs heavyher scent still on your skinthe coloured-everything-and-then-left ache of her unloving, the absent presence of hereverywhere, every minute, her laughter, her warmthher throaty, brazen whispers wait until you wake up feeling her hands on you and thenremember she is gonethe echoing emptinesswhen the once-abundant waterfall ...
another day of 3 a.m. sadnesswaiting for you with myheart in my mouththis silence ischoking me
not even this late sunsetenveloping me in golden lightcan melt this knife of iceyou stabbed me withso many times last night
your careless wordsfalling so effortlesslyfrom those fingersthose careless handsso deftly breakingmy heart apartso blinded by youI just didn't seethat knife
funny how you can break a heartwithout ever laying a fingeron the one who loves
Tonight's going to be another night Of lying on the ground at 3 amBut tonight I won't wonder Where you are
you are a precipiceand I like to live a little too dangerouslyrushing headlongwhen I see the fallshattering ecstasysuch delicious violencecolour me satedwhen blood is drawn
the numbers can't go wrongyou said, but I know how they lieevery hour of silence stretchesinto infinity whenyou leave
today I am that girl on the trainred notebook, blue penscribbling your namedo you even knowI want to sink my teethinto the side of your palmdo you even know youhold my heart in those hands
people are not to be trustedyou saidespecially not in this cityoh babydon't trust mein any city
who knewfrom that easy smileyour mouthheld so much promise
every time you taste happinessfor a little too longI hope it stabs you,the memory of what you did to us
born right in time for a violent uprisingshortly before the breakout of a three-decade-long warin a country where no less than seven people die in road accidents every single dayand one natural disasterclaimed almost thirty-one thousand lives in the space of a half-a-morning how is it that death has not claimed you yet?[my love-hate holds you bound tightly tothis earth]
dodged a bullet yesterday - it's not easy, hiding from you in a country suddenly too small.
what once seemed like lovein hindsight becomesan astounding type of idiocy -it takes two rare idiotsto do to each otherwhat we did
vocal cords paralyzed, woke up soundlessly screamingthroat raw, burning; your ghost shredding my sleep stillyou were only readingin an empty house you used to visit, a house I once lived inand yet I woke upsilently screaming, the sight of you unbearable still
