Closer Than My Veins

I try to keep my distance
But I don’t see the difference
You’re closer than my veins are
 
At night I say a little prayer
To wake up and not find you there
Still residing inside of my heart
 
I try to rip you off my skin
But you’re attached deeply within
Between memories and old scars
 
I ruin this perfect picture
Of you and me together
I taint it with black tears and tar
 
How I hate photographs
The happiness we used to have
Seems unrealistic and exceedingly far
 
Let it all burn to the ground
We are all destined to fall down
I just pray next time I don’t fall this hard
