So now that you have found your little corner that’s bustling with ingratiating voices you so dearly adore, dressed in intricately woven tulle and fine muslin Their fawning lips keep screaming, “Encore!” Isn't it everything you wanted and still, so much more? So now that you have killed me, granted, for the umpteenth time Looks like this time death will take for beats that began dancing to the rhythm of your chime fell finally numb, trounced by reiterated ache Isn’t it odd that to reality it almost took me a century to wake? So now that we are done, tell me what were the magic words? To what I thought a reticent heart, everyone seems to have a key Thrice I knocked only to find your charm descend by two thirds They get your ardent attention, but it’s dismissal you kept for me Isn’t it silly that I find myself, still, making excuses for your cruelty? So now that you have found the one you love or so you claim And I'm stuck finding a way out of this engulfing morass Acting ignorant as you turn a blind eye to my strain, as if seeming a goody two-shoes could never be that crass, Isn't it funny, you kiss her lips, thinking I'd stay and raise the glass?
