He fears reality
so he goes off to a land
that is his own

He fears feelings
so he runs off
several times a day
& still he seems to feel

He puffs out clouds
from his very soul
and with every cloud
he feels ecstasy
with every ounce of it
he runs
f a r t h e r and f a r t h e r.

I know I barely know him
but I want to though
I want to know even the parts of him
that never get to see the light.
With me
he wont need to run
he can just

I worry about him still
& I care for him still
but i'm done being his caretaker
i'm moving on
to bigger and better things
though i'll never forget him

He is beauty
In every way
His walk
His talk
His metal smile
The veins that make their way up his arms
He is imperfect
He is real
Yet he is beautiful
He is shy
The dark look in his eyes
I know he has a secret
& I want to know what it is
His arms
The way he hides his teeth when he smiles
The way he pretends to listen to music
While he's actually blissfully aware
Aware of me
I'm longing for him
& his imperfection
His **Beauty

They sit there
Two perfect strangers

He sits there
Soaking in perfection .
She sits there
Putting up a front .

He sits there
His perfection fading
He too is putting up a front
He sits there quietly
Wishing he could scream at the top of his lungs
But instead
He just sits there-  Silent.

She sees that all of his perfection is gone
But she wants to soak in him
They're mutual loneliness
They're mutual pain.

They sit there
Two perfect strangers
Silently  *falling

I'm nobody
A little piece of nothing
I'm nobody
Just broken hearts
Empty promises
I'm nobody
And nobody cares
I dream of being somebody
Maybe someday
But right now
I'm nobody
And nobody cares
I'll probably never be happy
I'll probably never find anyone
Who cares?
I'm breaking
I'm cracking
I'm dropping
But nobody cares
And they'll never notice
I'll be here
No love
I'm nobody
And nobody seems to care
They'll see my smile
And swear I've got no worries
I'll probably pretend to be happy
They'll never know
Because I'm nobody
And nobody will ever care.

— The End —
