Two-Edged Sword

Heartbeat

So long we've been together

 

LOVE YOU, HATE YOU

Yet grown so far apart

 

NEED YOU, BREAK YOU

The two-edged sword of love

 

FEED MY FLESH TO FIRY ENDS

Is cutting at my heart.

 

JUST TO FEEL YOU BURN WITH ME

   

DESPAIR IS HOPE THAT

To love you is to lose me

 

NEVER DIES THOUGH FATE

Your hopes become my dreams.

 

HANDS US ONLY GOODBYES

Where once my own thoughts lingered

 

TURN MY FACE TO HIDE THE TEARS

There's only you it seems.

 

LIQUID LOVE, LISTEN NOW

   

IT'S REALLY LAUGHTER

To hurt you is to wound myself

 

THAT YOU HEAR

As my smile is in your eyes.

 

DENY DESIRE, DISTANT THOUGHT

Am I your hazy shadow

 

NOT ALONE, JUST APART

Or myself in your disguise?

 

I FEEL YOU BEATING IN MY HEART.

     

Where do you stop and I begin?

 

SMT 1998

What have you found of me?

   

If I try to show you

   

Will you finally see?

   
     

Somewhere deep within my heart,

   

Pierced by a bloody blade,

   

A locked up box and rusty key

   

At your feet are laid.

   
     

If you choose to look inside

   

Trash or treasure will you find?

   

Demons dark or angels bright

   

In the playground of my mind.
