Never ask me to write you love letters,
Never ask me to pose for photographs.
I have nothing to give, so don’t ask me
To help you.
I’m hairs on the carpet, nails on the floor,
A slight crack in the window pane;
You have no use for me,
I’ll only drain the life from
A cut in your lips.
So never ask me for anything,
And don’t rely on me to keep you alive;
It’s a gamble you’ll never win.
