21 grams of tears

forest turned to desert

affection tainted by hurt

stemming the flow of our words

channels of romance divert

the bedrock started to crack

groundwater coloured black

i've forgotten your touch, amnesiac

we're near the point of no turning back

and then i cry into your soulless eyes

they glow again like you're baptised

our shrivelled, withered love revives

refills the lake of your mind

but you turned to leave

now that’s a problem for me

i have only one soul, you see

my shell is now empty
