Speak to Me Potentially

Tell me what I want to hear.

Give me every reason to believe that you love me just from the waterfalls of your words

So I can drown in them.

Make it hard for me to breathe and send me to hallucination of the love you tell me so much about.

Take me into a dark room.

Lay me in your bed of lies.

Undress me with the symphonies whispered through your gritting teeth as if it hurts you to sing something that isn't true to your heart.

Stroke into me the bass line of your true feelings

So that I can cry and tell myself

"This is the best you're going to get...

This is what you're worth."

Go ahead.

Tell me what I want to hear.


I want you to Speak to me Potentially

To continue living through this lie.
