I lie here

     bleeding out

and no one cares

     they will show up

 

If I die

     saying nice things

nothing they would

     say in person

but at funerals

     they lie

 

I fought my fight

     a long time

alone

     I heard the words

of love

     the lies

 the actions

     speak the truth

 

I lie here

     bleeding out

words of love

     stabbing me

repeatedly

 

Finally out of the box

     into the ground

bleeding

     words of love

elude me
