Silence rapes the atmosphere
Then begs for your forgiveness
The sudden urgency to cry is lost
Yet depression gets its prize.
Held a candle to a tree once
Then listened for it beg for my mercy.
Such a silly thing mercy is
Only given when people are watching.
Two are hanging from a cliff;
One you professed your love to a year ago
Another much more recent.
Which of them do you save?
The recent love
So you can find out if it is true?
Or the old one
Because as she is clamoring for life
She is swearing on everything holy
She loves you.
As in your distraction
And inability to decide
They both have let go
Neither of them wanting to know
What your decision would be.
