Do you ever have that feeling
Where something is lurking in the shadows
And it's not a person
But an event
Like some time soon
Everything around you is just going to
And there's nothing you can do to stop it
Just wait and watch.
And I hate you
Not because of all the ways you broke my heart
But because the way it still flutters over you.
It's all I keep telling myself to think
But really what I'm thinking is
Break me again
I dare you.
The last few months I could feel you in my veins
And I pushed aside every thought and dream I had
And here you are
And my heart has that pressure it use to
And I have to be strong
Because I cannot let myself love you again.
I wonder sometimes about those lost words
Written on stray pages that just seemed to vanish
Floating away into nothingness
With more heart and memory than I can contain in just this keyboard
The pen is mightier
The pen is more honest
And now maybe those words
Written in sloppy haste
Can bring someone else peace.
There you are
Trying to light a fire
With nothing but a single match.
Why and how
Are so many of our young innocent bodies stolen from us?
