She sinks like lead within my heart,
Steel claws, cold truth, I'm ripped apart.
Dismissed from thought, abstained from faith,
Shot down from hope, a sullen state.

Still truth be told I tried too hard.
She didn't catch my fragile heart,
And here it fell like shattered glass.
Like ticking time, I let it pass.

And so I follow fate's designs,
A feeble breeze on broken chimes.
Too long it feels to be repealed,
And still cold claws, serrated steel.

This gloom consumes my tomb of flesh.
Forget the rest, I'm second best.
