And she passed me
Like everything else
**** the ones who make me mad
But let them be without it.
American Dreams are made of spit and waking up,
***** men and women and
Pale white
Dull light on the night shift by yourself,
Taking his shift because you don't have a choice
And screaming silent in the bathroom because
There's nothing else.
There's nothing else.
and everything that Was

A soft ***** deep behind the strings of your heart, obscured but of a feeling
no one's ever felt except for when he touched your hand.

and when he left you it was dread
dread for the empty space in between
dread for the waiting for the waiting
for the when

And dread for the thought of never coming back,
of never-release from that thing,
not a man.

But at least you got to know.
At least you got to see.
To touch and feel,
to kiss and sleep.
