LOVE LEFT IN REDUX

LOVE LEFT IN REDUX

 

In those moments that held us cold and sober

where the silence crawls, apathy becomes the thrill

demanding all our attention, realizing the fight

in us was finished, a bitter pill we swallowed, moreover

 

to have a love you can't get back, our paradise lost

a love left in redux, now a casualty, the final cost

 

like a half past moon, no reason to stay

we have nothing left to savor or hinder

with our tongues silently rendered, why

didn't love stay, paying the price, no say

 

love was a conversation in passing, no pat answer

we lift the flag of surrender- as love goes down under

if it wasn't enough, for us both, this love, we shared

a love we once devoured, to fight or flight, now a blur

 

to have a love you can't get back, our paradise lost

a love left in redux, now a casualty, the final cost

 

honesty our only option, with hearts laid out on the sleeve

while in the morning after, it was the wedge to drive us away

truth or consequence, was it you, or was it me, maybe both or

a little bit of happenstance, a part of our growing make believe

 

to have a love you can't get back, our paradise lost

a love left in redux, now a casualty, the final cost
