broken lips

where have you been running
under cascading waterfalls
the time you’ve been wasting
could have been better spent
falling short of desperation
just take these broken lips
their yours to hide

look upon these old eyes
the truths they hold back
are not always mine
freeing up my hollow soul
takes more women than wine
just take these broken lips
their yours to hide

memories of past lives
creeping up to deliver me
like old regrets of misery
rough hands on my skin
scratching to get back in
just take these broken lips
their yours to hide

these broken lips
these broken lips
their yours
not mine
