I should have known (Alan One-shot) (MPhlox)I should have seen it
after each late night you knocked on my door
through each smile you managed to crack
every time my gaze lingered
through the thick glass of those empty bottles
in the ashes of those cigarettes
but all I saw was you laugh it all off
though I didn’t know at the time
I should have seen it
I looked at you enough
You always seemed to have things under control
I couldn’t see past the precise perfection of your one-man masquerade
Excuse me while I figure this out
How could I pay so much attention but miss the pain you felt?
Where was I?
Why didn’t I try hard enough to be by your side?
The pain tears me up inside
to think of the tears you always managed to hide
That nothing I could do would stop you
But then I think
If I was there, would I have been able to help?
To save you from that knot in your throat
To save you from having to forget
To usurp you from your glass bottle throne
Amongst the smoke and ashes
