I don’t know why I keep reading into things that shouldn’t be read. Stories that have ended long ago, but the words sit like tattoos on my bruised skin, and I keep strattling the line between what’s just fiction and what will be marked down as history.
Give me the words of a broken poem, And the heart of an empty soul
So I’ll just keep writing all of these numb words, and they’ll just keep running circles in my brain
I’ve stopped fighting that fear that used to live in the corner of my brain. I used to think nothing would last forever, and that two people could only break and burn
But you proved me wrong
And I gave up the fight a long time ago, and fell into your arms
You catch me over and over again
Each time leading me closer to the truth,
That two people can be magnetic, and the force pulls us together
And we are meant to be in love, for the rest of eternity.
The world was still asleep but we were tangled up in each other’s skin.
Warmth between our two trembling hearts replaced the insecurities we both have been tasting.
Within that moment of captivation our pasts dissolved, and became nothing but distant and regrettable,
But never us.
When we were intertwined, I found my salvation; in you. In me. In our love.
That is just how I picture us,
under the stars.
Surrounded by nothing but beautiful things.
Laying side by side in the kind of silence that doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable
but makes you feel whole.
I wonder where it all changed,
When everyone forgot my name, and decided to stop calling.
When my mind stopped working like it did when I was just a little girl
When my insides decide to start emptying out, and all the blood started spilling
did I do it to myself
Despair seems like the right word to use to describe the hole that has formed in my chest,
The seasons kept changing, with winter rushing in and freezing every feeling I’ve ever felt
They told me that we would fix the hole, fill it back in with hope and dreams
But it just keeps getting bigger, and it swallows the summers and warm springs
And leaves me with the bitterness of what once kept me full of life
You set my heart on fire, And leave me with red lip tainted skin.
When I see my reflection I am reminded that I am yours
And I am, with every aspect of my being. If you were air I’d breath you in and fill my lungs.If you were a window, I would be the rain; Washing away the days hard remnants.
But you are you, and for me that is enough to keep me burning.
I am broken;
You are broken;
We are whole.
