Okay, I'm sure love is just fine and dandy, or whatever, but really?! Where's the fun in a happy love poem?

A Razor Worthy Love Story

When you look at me, there's no reflection in your eyes,
Your tongue keeps hidden a steady stream of goodbyes,
When I feel only weight on my skin with your hands on my hips,
When I get close enough for you to feel my breath burn your lips

Your tongue leaves a trail of ice, not fire on my skin,
The beer on your breath suggests where you've been,
And I can smell her perfume when I try to breathe,
But I don't say anything, 'cause I'm afraid that you'll leave

When my breathing slows down, I can think of the past,
I can almost hear you say that this love will last,
But you rob lips and break hearts when I'm not around,
When you think that my heart cannot hear a sound.

A/N: No, I have no experience whatsoever in the field of love. Just an ample supply of movies like The Notebook to remind me why I don't really want to be in love. TOO MUCH DRAMA!
