you and me
were carefree
at the beginning

a minute

telling me about
your day

and me
two syllables in

(the rest implied)

strapped into
a ride
without a known

descending into
the dark

with a light

that fist
that clenches
in the middle of the night

that ball of hate
that can't wait
until my eyes close

that explosion
of me knowing
how wrong i always am

that feeling
that keeps the healing
away from my door

no good anymore
the heart's on the floor

whatever was sun
is gone again

laving me brewing
tossing and turning
when all should be

nothing's good to me
without you

but you're past caring
about that

not this apple
but that

not that apple
but this

i watched
you select
only the best

for your basket

but as the sun
shone its way
the orchard

it overshadowed
the path 
to my heart

if you
are this particular
over fruit
that gets eaten

if you
are this cautious
about food
you partake

then how
did you think
i was the one
that was worth it?

did you know
i was the one
that would stay?

the apple
of your eye
as time passes by

rotten to the core

will you ever
find out
the secret of
my appeal

or am i
in the darkness

reach out

you are
a giggle
in my ear
and a whisper
in my heart

even though
we're apart
we're still alive

when we
reach out
and dream
