you stand before me, pretending the world is so small, cradling your own head, while i weep. you kneel before me, making false promises of something better..

if i thought it would matter
i would 
          take your
                      hand
but it doesn't.


if i thought it would help
you might
              see me
                          try        
but you're just as lost.


if i believed your thoughtful lie
i would 
            tell you
                        why
but you already know.


if you felt what i do
you might
             understand
                          now
but you can't.


if i wanted you to stay
believe me 
              you
                     would..

i don't, so.. i'll just hope the universe
swallows
         you
              whole.
