Remnants

Lying in the remnants of the night before
We have no idea
What we were hunting for
We don't love each other
That much we agreed
Here in the remnants of the chemistry of need

Picking up the remnants of feelings torn apart
We blame the dark desires
We blame the foolish heart
Not many words escape us
Our thoughts are all restrained
Here in the remnants of the injuries sustained

Deciphering the remnants of lives we threw aside
To revel in the needs
For so long we denied
The sight of flesh on flesh
So hungry and so raw
Here in the remnants of the disregarded law

Discarding now the remnants of our hopeless little lives
Not ready for the boredom
Of husbands and their wives
We came for what we needed
We left with something less
Here in the remnants of a loss we can't confess
Here in the remnants of a loss we can't confess
