Skimming The Bottom

She's skimming the bottom
Looking for signs of life
Trying to heal her wounds
From the twist of loves' knife

She's as low as it gets
As she crawls across the floor
Pulling herself forward
Though she is weary and sore

To just once lift her head
To feel a fraction of her pride
To remove some of the pain
That is eating her alive

She's skimming the bottom
All love did, was let her
Still when you sink that far
Things can only get better
