Don’t cry, no words, stay still, don’t complain,
Shut your eyes, take a breath, bear the pain.
It’s dark but you know that’s how it is,
It’s hurting, I know, the light’s amiss.
The heart aches, the head revolves,
Solutions discarded, problems you can’t solve.
Lips parched, the mascara smudged,
You tell him you’re wilting but he won’t budge.
The colors fade, the roses die,
Hopeless shrugs, shallow breathing, colder sighs.
The past smirks, the future trembles,
Gather yourself, stay strong, don’t stumble.
Don’t even think about it, I know you don’t like red,
You are too beautiful to be the one dead.
