lyrics

This Affair

This affair has suffered the same fate as all things
Our time together
The bliss
Lost hours forgotten days
Our moments presented for all to see
The vision
You drove me to drink
I’m drinking now
You are not here
You hang at another’s
If I had known
Would I have given up so much to achieve you
The end elation
Your flaws show my imperfection
I pray for perfection more than the end
I would continue without end
If there was hope of perfection
And you have flaws
My flaws

We grow apart
Others come
Others go
Their nakedness perfect for my embrace
I mar them
Scar them
And cover them
As I did you
They also leave me
Growth what a bitch
What a struggle
Will you forgive
Will they forgive
I will try again
My path of construction/deconstruction
Lays ahead of me
Life art
