cold and dry
a sewn eyebrow
face deadpan
strains my hands
to forgive right now

And you're just making it harder for me.

slow deep breaths
from your dead chest
dark crossed eyes
no more lies
peaceful rest

-And you're just making it harder for me.

An essence of form and of light:
I draw a line to try to make some sense
of what's in my mind.
That is why it's so frustrating,
the picture just doesn't seem
to end up the way I want it to be.

And you're just making it harder for me.
You had to ruin it for me.
You're only bandaging me.
That is why you lied to me.
You should have just listened to me.
You did what I would hate the most to happen.
Did you ever care about me?
You must feel what I feel.
And you're just making it harder for me.
That is why I long to be by your side.
