those three words hollow out the room
two people staring at each other with
a Professional hate for this world
pitiful words chased down with a hasty
but this ecstasy is laced
it’s laced with death, guilt, and worst of all
these walls have been rebuilt too many times
these walls have heard these three words over
a dozen times
they beg for a new string of words
something that doesn’t hurt
something that doesn’t flirt with death
the door swings open
killing the mood
killing you too
ending the conversation before it even started
those three words linger in the air
waiting to be picked up
but once again there stuck in the dark
with no where to stay
picking apart my every move
those three words killed me
and they will kill you too
