Deep breath in
Deep breath out
Plaster a head-turning smile on your lips
Build up your perfect façade
I am strong
No you are not
I am fine
No you are not
I can handle it
No you cannot
Don't think about it
Think about it
Many times I’ve heard a humming, hissing whistle in my head,
My limbs are stiff, I’m catatonic, at times I’ve wondered – “Am I dead?” These paralyzing, harsh vibrations, I’m overpowered, my body shakes.
I cannot emphasize their potence, my mind’s alert, I’m wide-awake!
Many times I’ve felt sensations, the tingling of needles and pins.
I’ve felt a splitting separation, a floating feeling, light and thin.
I’ve seen my body lying sleeping, behind my head the tightness aches.
I’m passing through a solid wall, my mind’s alert, I’m wide-awake!
Many times I’ve had adventures, where thoughts and actions coincide.
I’ve witnessed friends amongst each other, their time and place has verified.
I’ve visited the forth dimension, I’ve seen the grass beside the lake.
I’m flying with a guiding force, my mind’s alert, I’m wide-awake!
I'm still choking on the ashes of your disappointment,
And I'm still reenacting scenes from the grave,
And I wish I could take a step into your mind
To fathom what firing synapses are urging you to consider
What do you think about on late nights?
Do you think about airports and silent drives?
Do you think about beautiful lakes and perfect heartache?
I've been digging graves for every single "I love you"
And I'm running out of eulogies
Let me rest my head on your strong shoulders.
Let me fall asleep in your arms.
Let me get lost in your blue eyes.
Let me hug to listen to the way your heart beats.
Let me slowly kiss your tender lips.
Let me come home to you, everyday, for the rest of our lives.
Her fire reignited
an inferno inside
his heart. Her Fire
Illuminates his path
with every step he takes.
Her love cemented again
His shattered glass heart
From the careless
holder before. Her burning
Flames are his wings
To help them reach
new heights. Her fire
Is all he'll ever need
And he hopes she knows.
