In the room where you left me
there are stains in the carpet
The exit wounds of loving you
You were armed and unspoken
And I leave our tiny apartment wondering "why cant you stick around?"
but you can't help it that you're violent in all of the ways you let me down.
This is what your guilt looks like
when you hide under our bed
The bloody mess of rorschach tests
you will never hurt me again
like you said you wouldn't, like you said you could.
And I leave our tiny apartment wondering how I could love you right
but you can't help it that the only way to be the nice guy is with lies.
And in the room where you left me there are stains from all my open wounds
but you can't help it makes you happy watching someone bleeding over you
