I Left the Door Unlocked

Deflated now am I
A choked back sob
An eternal wall of doubt
An old, twisted branch reaching
Forever reaching
Grasping at the cool night’s air
Trying to remember
Desperately trying to forget
Touches mean malice now
Every solitary figure in the darkness steals
a part of me I thought you already took
Smiles are foreign
Trust ceases to exist
Numb now am I
Like you always were
I bathe in pretentiousness now
For that’s all I was in your eyes
All I ever will be
Sun rises,
sun sets
That is all
The spaces in between don’t mean anything
Mirrors scream at me
When did my skin became so grey?
When did my eyes become so empty?
Nothing lurks behind them anymore
Nothing brews beneath my tousled hair
I beg for me back
I pray
I plead
I wish you out of existence
But you and your damage are irreparable
And I thought I said goodbye to all this before
Never again an unlocked door
