030

Seeing your shadow
As you walk out the door
Your weak heart leading you south
I’m projecting again
Everything we could’ve been lost
Tumbling out of words in the bathroom
Fully clothed just like a cliche
Standing in the shower
Soap in our eyes
You did it again and I’m left here
Blinked tears and OxyContin
I’d fuck you away if I could
But you’re there every time I look down
Your eyes staring back at me
Even though you’re not a brunette
Or that shade of blonde
What could I say to make you stay
Should I have offered to run with you
Further and further until we’re away
You’re a cheap date not that I remember
Just two drinks and a promise
To fake it until we make it
Running up my tab
Pretending I’ve got the credit
