Now we’re Back

Now we’re Back

A Chapter by J. Viands

 Swing at me

I’ll stand tall turn around and roar

Just like a little boy

Watch you pout in the corner like a little girl

Meanwhile recalling promises from just a few days before


We called an end to this war

Honestly wishing we could go back to years before

Years when we still thought there was a point


Now we’re back

We’ll fall together hand in hand

Taking part in each other’s insane games

Ain’t it a shame?


What became of you when I was gone is vague

For some reason I can’t say you’re caught in the crossfire

Get out of the way

I guess it’s just the games we play


I’ll fiddle with this blade

Lock the bedroom behind it’ll keep you safe

Call my name as I run away

Hold me in your embrace as we say we won’t do it again

Now we’re back

We’ll fall together hand in hand

Taking part in each other’s insane games

Ain’t it a shame?


How did love leave us in such a miserable state?

Look at this place mimicking the life we live

As I got my hand on your waist whispering we won’t do this again

God why do we keep doing it anyway


Didn’t we do a good job saving each other’s lives?

With lust and drugs

Playing house like big kids

Forgiving each other’s ignorance


How many times did we have to utter the words I can’t put up with this?

Before it blew up into what it did

You’re stuck in my dreams and it makes me sick

To think we did this s**t

This reminded me of the song, "love the way you lie"
cuz of the tone, the questions and flow.

i tried rapping, to make it sound like a song, but failed miserably! :D

Its a good read.
