I Came Here To Forget You.
I came here looking for paradise
And I thought it would make a difference.
What I found,
Was a bitter taste on my lips.
A strawberry blonde coastline
That wasn't forgiving enough.
A sky so clear,
It wouldn't allow me detachment.
I came here hoping
That isolation would free me from my anger.
But the silence
Only allowed my aggression more freedom.
And the pulsing waves
Sounded like a heartbeat I'd never hear again.
And the birds
Raised their voices to mock my loss.
I came here begging for a beauty so pure,
It could burn your image from the back of my eyes.
But the salty mist on my skin
Felt like passionate sex.
And the relentless sun
Felt like infidelity.
And every poisonous flower
Had your face.
What good is paradise anyway.
