Working with Distance
See, I'm not allowed to go back to the welcome mat called home
Merely because of a boy with green lungs
Bedtime story mouths say you're heading down a path of destruction
But how am I supposed to sit back and let that happen?
Because a way of living they don't approve of,
I am force fed hypocritical helping hands
Moonlit hearts and guilty rules
That palpation in your heart called pain
Does not escape in the form of smoke, blood, or tears.
Listen to me
let my words sit in the crevices of your brain just this once
This is not good for me
Its eating me from the inside out
Leaving the memory of you behind
My heart is reproducing arms
And they are reaching out my chest
Stretching out for miles
Just trying to find you
