  • Ossified, tempered and cool blue
    He's looking at me so confused
    His ticker, a monolith, bewildered by a tear

    So unfazed, flat and unknowing
    He's angry with me just for showing
    A red thread of wild emotion
    Punch drunk by my mood

    What good is a heart if it doesn't bleed?
    Is he stuffing it down so tight he can't breathe?
    What good is a heart if it doesn't heed
    That hanging omen
    Shining to show you, inevitably
    The sadness you don't wanna feel?

    Totally sober, cold and unfeeling
    He shudders when I start revealing
    My weakness and when I need him
    He'd rather hide away

    You could lead the blind
    To that levee deep inside
    But he won't have the tools
    And you'll be an alien
    In a foreign land, again Writer/s: Tristen Gaspadarek
