and regret lingers everywhere
leaving it's poisonous fumes
Intoxicating the air
So breathe lightly if any at all
Stay silent, least you faint
Hearts are bleeding
yet you're wearing make up
Fake smiles stained like paint
When the mood is perfect,
and time is on my side
When the stars are twinkling,
right into your eyes
Then I can be whatever
you need. I'd,
hold you close until
you fall asleep.
Maybe dream about
how the earth turns
with you and me.
The places we'd
the things we'd see.
But nothing is for
and surely not
Maybe it was anger that greeted me when I woke up.
Either way, I never want to see you again.
Life is short and you're on my list of mistakes.
I thought I could correct it but I chewed off my eraser.
It was pink and looked like gum, I was bored of course.
Don't take it personal, I know you have questions.
You need closure and I'm an open book, technically you never saw it coming.
This way I feel better about myself so leave me alone.
When did we get lost?
Wasn't it you how taught me everything?
Why was I so afraid to love you?
When there's a will there's a way.
That's what you taught me.
I'm trying to live up to your expectation
but you always gave me a choice.
A voice to have of my own. You just wanted the best.
Realization is weird.
Realizing how much I wasted on hate.
and it's killing me.
Love is meant to be without conditions, you showed me how.
I guess that's what so hard.
I can never be like you.
I wish I told you that more.
Then there's this moment I keep replaying,
oh how I let you down.
I saw the loneliness in your eyes.
But I didn't come to comfort you
All I did was hide.
It's my biggest regret about you.
If I could shift time I'd go back.
You and I would live in a limitless space.
Maybe one day I'll be able to
