On Invisible Detonations


It's only for a few months, he reminds me 
sensing the brave face I was putting up
as I watched him pack to move out for a few months...

Arms never could hold heart-pieces in place 
Bravado buckles in spite of intent 
It is impossible to embrace 
All that we longed for after it is spent 

Love never did promise Easy Street 
Though sometimes I kinda wish that it would 
They say the bitter makes better the sweet 
Later came sooner than I thought it could 

You want a hug? He asks bashfully 
I try to keep a brave smile on my face 
But oh, my old heart gets the best of me 
Arms never could hold heart-pieces in place
