salty tears sugarcoat the lies you tell me
your voice, sweet honey like voice
puts me to sleep better than those pills
which have stopped working a long time ago
forgotten, kept aside
like the girl i used to be
 
love is all i have to give you
time is all i need to destroy the old me
i sing the words to a melody you forgot
you harmonize to a song i know by heart
but two broken wings
aren’t meant to be shared
 
your candy lips are bittersweet
as they stitch my pink wounds
i never bothered to heal
but my salty tears burn open them again
salty tears, sweet lies
salty tears, red signs
 
red is love, red is danger
but you paint your love like a woman
color it like a no color film
black and white, white and black
but your love is fierce
fierce like the red smeared across her lips
 
somedays i burn
in the love you carry, rising again
like a phoenix, made up of ashes
loyal to you and you alone
but you never wear my feathers
in your silken hat
 
somedays i remain
buried in that heap of ash
you never bothered to store
forgotten like all the sweet boys
i now remember
before i got entangled in your web
i think i tried to depict toxic love? please do tell me if there's anything i can improve!

    I love this, idk if you were writing this as a song or as a poem but I think it would make a really amazing song! Just find a melody and its perfect. Beautifully written, good job!

    "Red is love, red is danger" has to be my favorite line. You depicted toxic love really well, imo. <3
