What I Don’t Want to Hear

This is the sound
I don’t want to hear
The sound of my heart
As my blood turns to tears

I’m pouring over
This hopeless case
You’re throwing out my heart
Like waste

We’d be better off
You’d be gone
And I’d be dark

But you are gone
I don’t know where
You left me sitting
Waiting here

I couldn’t see
I couldn’t speak
My sorrows drowned
In turquoise seas

Where love is just
A lofty thought
A notion to be
Long forgot

Not forgiven, though
It’s safer here
Where I’m alone

and hopelessness took hold
