Don't Stand Too Close

Don't get too close
My teeth are sharp.
Don't look too deep
My eyes are red.
All that you hope
Has left my heart;
All that you seek
Has left my bed.

I am a dangerous echo
Trapped in flesh.
The soft corners of my soul
Are caked in scabs
And scars that will never go.
All that I have is anger and pride
And painful reminders inside…
I always wanted your smile
And your warmth at my side…

My heart lies in shards
That can cut your hands.
Don't worry about the mess;
Were I stronger I'd take care of thee
But I have now only the strength
To look after me.
Don't stand too close
Because I'm falling wearily.
