    Take a look at my body
    Look at my hands
    There's so much here
    That I don't understand

    Your face saving promises
    Whispered like prayers
    I don't need them

    I've been treated so wrong
    I've been treated so long
    As if I'm becoming untouchable

    Contempt loves the silence
    It thrives in the dark
    With fine winding tendrils
    That strangle the heart

    They say that promises
    Sweeten the blow
    But I don't need them
    No, I don't need them

    I've been treated so wrong
    I've been treated so long
    As if I'm becoming untouchable

    I'm a slow dying flower
    Frost killing hour
    The sweet turning sour
    And untouchable

    Oh, I need
    The darkness
    The sweetness
    The sadness
    The weakness
    Oh, I need this

    I need
    A lullaby
    A kiss goodnight
    Angel sweet
    Love of my life
    Oh, I need this

    I'm a slow dying flower
    Frost killing hour
    The sweet turning sour
    And untouchable

    Do you remember the way
    That you touched me before
    All the trembling sweetness
    I loved and adored?

    Your face saving promises
    Whispered like prayers
    I don't need them
    No, I don't need them

    I need
    The darkness
    The sweetness
    The sadness
    The weakness
    I need this

    I need
    A lullaby
    A kiss goodnight
    The angel sweet
    Love of my life
    Oh, I need this

    Well, is it dark enough?
    Can you see me?
    Do you want me?
    Can you reach me?
    Or I'm leaving

    You better shut your mouth
    Hold your breath
    Kiss me now you'll catch your death
    Oh, I mean it
    Oh, I need this.

    i think, for now, im done.
    was a good journey while it lasted, now im going to sleep.
    good night and good bye.

    You romantic you!

    But sure, I guess I feel the love also.

    I guess its a song about a love gone wrong

    It's always a safer bet to play those as if your married, you won't mind, but if your lonely or single, it will remind you that your not the only one. And it might encourage you to man up or women up and ask for a dance.

    I once lost a women, literally lost her, in a crowd, but I was feeling mellow at the time (= likely out of his mind, almost)

    So if you were that women in that crowd - then give us a call - I thought you were not interested, which is why I might have flirted (to put it mildly) with someone else.

    Sorry to hijack your poem like this - but I guess you understand.
