Butcher's Cut

With my heart upon the butcher block
So tenderly wrapped with love and care
You tear apart the strings and paper
And carve right in

You slash and dig, rip and gouge
Looking for things that are not there
You open old wounds
Slice through scar tissue
Hoping to see what you want to see
Forgetting to see what's really there

You throw away the gold
Let the warmth go cold
Hack apart the tender pieces
And push them to the side

You've ruined the gift I've given you
As I try to take it back
I fight for all the pieces
That you've thrown into the trash

I gave you my love
I gave you my word
But it wasn't good enough
It was more than you deserved
