Delighting in Disappointment

I don’t know what I expected from a man so hallow inside

From the moment we first kissed I could taste the looming bite of a bitter goodbye

It’ll never work

And that’s what keeps drawing me back

I always seem to want what I can’t have

A strange sort of sickness

Full of equal parts: hope and doubt

Remiss of consequence

Forlorn to go with out

In knowing this, feeling it, I can’t bear to cut the lines

That connect you

And I

In a seemingly endless line of lies

Repeating them to myself day in and day out

To refrain from saying goodbye, but

I know how this is going to end

I can feel it in my bones

So just pull the fucking trigger, baby

Please just let me go
