Of Subdued Angels

My lips are colored

Sharp, red and glowing

And I sever anyone I kiss

With words that rip apart

I deepen wounds

With every lethal slash

And actions that change

Like dawn to day

So blindingly bright

I hope that you don’t fall

In form of shreds

For I cannot stop myself

From lashing out

Every time you get closer

And I know you shall be

Nothing more than nothing

By the time I’m done with you

And so I let you walk away

Let you to grow out of this feeling

You’ve grown in your heart  for me

One that only deserves light

So let it enter you

Every time you smile

For you’ve forgotten

What it’s like to do so

And you call it love

I am not what it’s supposed to feel like, my love

My angels might be dying

To come out and see you

But even they know

There isn’t a way out

For they’re in caged under my ribs

While my demons are armed

And they guard my lips.
