They say-
The high is worth the pain

But where was my pleasure

As those days turned into weeks and months

Love was too pure a word for what I felt
Desire

Lust
Want

Replace ecstasy with regret
And I am full

Spilling over

Tears like a waterfall

My heart can’t leave my ribs

So I put my fist through the drywall.

My feet drag on

I let the exhaustion take me over

Because there’s nothing for me to come home to

Not when you were never mine
