Red Hourglass


That look continues to haunt me

A smiling face and a hollow promise

Sweet nothings that slowly draw me in

To a warm caress that’s so dishonest

The softness of your lips is paralyzing

It steals away my desire to leave

With life draining from my chest

Happily trapped in the web you weaved

Your fangs easily pierce my chest

I gladly ignore the pain

Because I love you with all my heart

Even if that means I'm insane

Soon I too will be hollow

A shadow of who I used to be

As you look for your next

Quickly forgetting about me
