I feel like I never said your name,
You only ever said mine.
So long we wandered around together, and
How much time did I spend
Trying to… hide?
I was a monster in love with my reflection now I will say his name and love the taste of the inflection please help me stop this sad obsession make me someone by making me no one.
A burn that cannot be undone
The bitter taste that masks the sun
Pull back from the shadows and let the light in
Break down your walls and feel again
Through miles and miles of travel, stay
As far from comfort, love and loss
To bury the ache and shoulder my cross
I want to be breathless with loneliness
Leave me here and
Please just f o r g e t u s
I don’t think I know anyone
All hearts are foreign to me
Have I ever even loved? Have I ever set someone free
Why do my heartbeats echo just to hurt the ones I need
I am guilty of cutting up your veins
I close my eyes and sip the stains
I fill my heart with all your pain
And sleep unhurt while you
L i e a w a k e
But will you move along someday
When someone else is as bright as me?
As loud, as eager, as strange and chaotic
Why stay here when others are c a l l i n g ?
One thing you did right
Was you loved my words.
You wanted to hear them
Day and night.
One thing you did wrong
Was you also loved her.
Was she on your mind
While I wrote of you?
I feel the shiver-heart so close,
Its echo rattling the prison cell
And I almost shriek for want of the feeling
But the moment passes, the tears die inside
I sink deeper into mire, unknown, unafraid
Traveling again to the memory lands
Alone or laden with new love within
To erase the taste of the past in my mouth
Like burnt sugar inhaled from the wind.
When will I be able to breathe again?
Take the heart, cut and dry
Let the waters flood my eyes
Fill me up with ink and blood
Show the sunlight what I’ve done.
