13 wishes washed ashore,
Our strings broke and tore.
12 more deaths at a local bar,
You never seemed quite this far.
11 times you told me to stay,
But I never saw you this way.
10 fingers tearing you apart,
I told you not to fall from the start.
9 ways to kill a mockingjay,
I watched you break day by day.
8 things you never understood,
And a thousand more I wish I could.
7 places to go alone,
Arguments over the phone.
6 gifts you always gave away,
Hearts are not made for display.
5 words to blow your perfect cover,
You were my friend, I was your lover.
4 puzzle pieces forever lost,
You never understood the cost.
3 chances you never knew,
I wish I could tell you "I love you", too.
2 pale bruises on my fingers,
Your poisonous touch lingers.
1 too many goodbyes,
I don't want your lies.
