grey fingernails
and black shoes
blond hair
and a blood red smile

death in the cafe
and smiles from friday
yesterday’s your boyfriend
but tomorrow’s not here

grey fingernails
and a too white smile
makeup to cover
what we’ll still see

fingers hold an iced nothing
ocean blue green eyes still looking
tired, bored, bet you didn’t see
or maybe you did

you should be in black
looks like i am for you
it’s a cold embrace
i’ve been waiting for

grey fingernails and black
blond and blood red
kiss that life away
painted your blood red.
