Swallowed By Carelessness. 

You don’t slur words just to let them slip by 

You don’t pray for rain just to want it to go away 

You don’t grow a forest just to burn them down 

You don’t love a person just to watch them leave your side 

– 

Why let happiness be swallowed by carelessness? 

Why let happiness be swallowed by anything at all? 

– 

Your words leave gaps in my bones 

After you plant them there and weed them out one by one 

It was carelessness; a gentle hurt 

But the hurt is no less 

Than cuts to growing saplings

Rooted right in the heart of our love
