paint me


EDITED: 9/3/08

paint me with only black and white
my colors have ran away in fright
i am a faint shadow in your light
the red in my veins that you have drained
has left me empty
so that you can have me

sing me with the breath that you've stolen
from my lips, betrayed my lungs, swollen
i am smaller than dust and i have fallen
into the sands in the cup of your hands
let me sift between each finger
so that you'd feel my touch linger

since i am yours to take
let me be yours to break
and i am yours to take
for i am yours

write me with words you seldom spoke of
my rules have no more use next to your love
i am push and pull, heave and shove
cut these strings that bind my wings
i'll fly to the sea
once you are there for me

since i am yours to take
let me be yours to break
and i am yours to take
for i am yours
i am yours
i am yours
