3 Styles Ago

Chip away
Chip away
Chip away
See the frayed remains
Of a want on a day
A scratched message displayed
To a paramour on her way
Lay layers of kind
That sink on a sunken mind as it dries
And we say our goodbyes to what was there once before
Chip away
Chip away
Chip away
And reveal the mosaic of alteration
In hands and in hearts
In fits and in starts
These falsehoods, remarks
Sit unremarked for years
And years
Like bandages
Upon bandages
The walls can not breath until
3 styles come and go and
The chiselled paper leans to ground
As browning leaves
Laying layers
