|A Tribute to Us|
Broken heart beating
At about 7pm the light in the room is pretty close to how it looked this morning
I'm sorry I only slept two hours last night..
Maybe it's just a defense mechanism, or I'm hoping the sleepiness will relax me
That one time we were under the trees and the breeze blew around us
Like we were one person,
We called it a 'perfect moment'.
A mechanism set in place
The offspring of two retards.
We were kicking ass and taking names.
We were throwing rocks at dead cat's graves.
We walked on rooftops, basked in moonlight.
We found a few good things in our lives.
The slightest touch of the softest skin
To sleep and never come back again. To shut you out then pull you in.
Everything feels so crazy when you're next to me.
I wake up screaming.
I always make the same mistakes but I'm not confused..
You are the grass and I am the roots, just before we fall apart.
You have to be who you are, you always retreat to the dark
Twenty feet isn't that far.
ghost of a ghost
Can't let go of your dreams
Stared at the sun till the middle of your shadow
Cast one thousand invisible chains
You always sleep with a stone in your hand
I can't stop humming that song you sang
To plan to fail
When failed to plan.
Like a bad independent film
Made with my own two hands.
Put your palms over my mouth so I can't voice this need
Hold fast though I bite them and you bleed
A dragon can never feel regret
Because they aren't real.
