the cracks

you taught me how
to give myself away
forgetting the torture
i slowly decay

desperate for value
searching all the wrong places
the promise of worth
stains mens' empty faces

like a faulty transaction
i give more and more
Internally dying
but this i ignore

yet lying here sadly
closed eyes to the pain
convinced that i want it
yet nothing to gain

each time promises better
and delivers much worse
hoping to be loved
proves lifes fatal curse
