The Space Between

Love was on our tongues, licking honey on our wounds

Like two puzzle pieces, my head beneath your chin

For years it was heaven, life with my best friend

Nights lost to giggles, with forever in our smiles

With my head upon your chest, your arm wrapped around

Listening to our hearts matching, beat by steady beat

Lulled sleeping in our bed, rolling over to our sides

A foot and a half hearth, fueled by love and endless kisses

A foot and a half hearth, fueled by love and endless kisses

Your king moved one by one, while my queen became ruler

Impatient with ambition, perfection was my rule

Warmth a cooling memory, my fires froze in ice

Every morning I chiseled smiles, to hide the truth inside the lies

I love you became currency of manipulated hope

As your heartbeat didn’t match mine, and the space between us grew

As your heartbeat didn’t match mine, and the space between us grew

The puzzle became puzzled, and nothing was quite right

Gasoline tongues licking wounds wide open, no passion left to burn

I’d stay on my side, and you would stay on yours

A foot and a half became a mile, silent as the grave

A foot and a half became a mile, silent as the grave

I love became I hate, forever became maybe, I do became I don’t

Forsake all others forsaken, as I found new arms that fit

Forgiveness forgotten, our chess game turned to chicken

A foot and a half became a tundra, two corpses playing house

A foot and a half became a tundra, two corpses playing house

The only warmth was when the gasoline had caught

Razed what we had raised

Our heaven turned to hell

We sit eye to eye in accusation

Not sure who struck the match

No king, no queen, no kingdom

A foot and a half became a graveyard of a battle fought and lost

A foot and a half wide war, our hearts the casualties

We sit eye to eye in accusation

Not sure who struck the match
