Hells Bells

Hells bells are ringing,
With a kiss I'm awake,
For you to utter the words that should not be said,
The awkward silence that follows tells you all.
Lying there in your arms,
Wishing this silence to end.
Try to escape without getting hurt,
No time for pain at this time,
Facing this world alone,
The bells keep ringing.
Smile at me all you want,
It doesn't change a thing,
I'm scared of love,
The alarm is off.

I had to smile at the image of hells bells ringing. This is a unique view of life, love, and waking up. Check line four for a typo. Raynette
Clever usage of the metaphor. Good last lines.
