When you told me you love me
I tattooed your name on my heart
Wound a cord of promise around my wrist
And that was my best mistake.
Now the ink are like laser burns
leaving the edges raw and red.
A bracelet of barbed wire tightened
and pulled leaving the pain growing.
What a long rough road to take.
My foolishness has build my burden
What can I say?
The once burning heart of passion
has faded to silent looks at each other.
A millimetre too close, an inch too far.
So near, but our hearts locked behind the bars.
