all that you have

the panic attack at three a.m.
the night i knew you’d done me in
you held me back
and gave me water
but it was only half-full
i needed more than you offered
lay me down and cover me up
walk away and leave the cup
’cause your glass is now empty
and i’m still so thirsty
and i’ve taken all that you have
the four cups of coffee at the diner on state
the day that i realized i’d be in your way
our table was tiny
i kept bumping your knees
no room for excuses
i slipped from my seat
pick me up and sit me down
walk away and don’t turn around
’cause your space is smalling
and i’m tired of falling
and i’ve taken all that you have
the back alley lot not far from your door
i finally saw that we’d been here before
with no reason left to stay
the streetlights were waning
i feared the end of us
and asked you to save me
put me in and strap me down
walk away and cover the ground
’cause your hours are dwindling
and i’ve burned them like kindling
i’ve taken all that you have
