a silver noose

It feels like something died inside my chest
Why did you hurt me?
I see your face, and everywhere I ache.
How could you be so cruel?
When all I did was love you?

Those are the eyes that mocked me.
Those are the hands that stabbed me in the back.
Those are lips that killed my heart and laughed.
Cause isn’t it so funny?

Get it? Get the joke?
You said – you tied a silver noose around my throat.
It’s alright!
You said – before you pulled it tight.
