we held hands
but mine disappeared in the sunlight

you called me a vampire
when I admitted
I could only love you in the dark
my hero lives inside my television screen
and his gun promises protection
from all the dangers that threaten me

he will remain
without a cause for fear
besides his imminent danger

he will save himself,
just as he promised
in the twelfth minute of the film

the worn out disc
still reminds me
that some promises can be kept
and some guns will never be pointed at me
I phase through walls
and my stomach aches
as if I swallowed the world
and it dissolved in a moment

without the air around me,
can I breathe?
without the ground beneath me,
can I stand?
I want to remember every second
when we felt in love

I wish they did not fade
from my mind like
fog after sunrise

I wish I could restore them
and we could be in love again
and I could love you
and I could be loved

as if I always were
will you be the one for me?
hopeless romantic,
lost cause,
looking for meaning

can you save me from myself?
or at least
the threat of loneliness?
I am free
from my Anger
who caged me in
like I was a villain
in my own narrative

my broken heart lies steady
but uneasy
and the words you pile on
are locks on my tomb
open up, let me out
plead and shout
