Cure for Lover’s Guilt

My lips might regret it.
It’s killing me to say it,
but nothing gold can stay.
The rust between us has
ruined the best of us.
Trust has withered
into a shell of its former self.
Your smokey eyes mislead
me about what you did
and where you went.
It’s like a love song:
You can’t fool us
’cause we know what you are.
This thing between you
and I remains scary,
but the antidote to our withdrawal
rests in the painkiller
lying in the arms of the other forever.
