give me a minute to gather my thoughts
before i pretend that i haven’t planned it at all
walking a tightrope, suspect that i’ll fall

but what’s the point in hurting if not to feel something
it’s better than nothing at all

i’m staring at my shoes because i can’t look at you, even though i want to
stumble on my words because i’m caught up in yours
not that we’re keeping score
at the same time, you scatter my mind
into pieces, puzzle pieces
you fit right into place, yeah, when i see your face.. i’m breathless

a million love letters that i’d never write
condensed into one song
so that you can read my mind

there’s so much to say, but i can’t find the right words to tell you
that i’m just so lucky you picked me if only it's until you found someone new

i’m staring at my shoes because i can’t look at you
even though i want to
stumble on my words because i’m caught up in yours
not that we’re keeping score
at the same time, you scatter my mind
into pieces, puzzle pieces
you fit right into place, yeah, when i see your face.. i’m breathless
my prequel to breathe

Your soft kisses on my forehead give me butterflies
Your smile leaves me breathless
Your kisses leave me senseless
Soft traces of your fingertips
And firm hands hold on to my grip

Your scent lingers for hours
Your hugs leave me weightless
Your love leaves me ageless
Soft kisses on my neck
And firm embraces hold me tight

You take my breath away
Stealing the sweet oxygen
Like a thief who leaves me in a blurry state of mind
Unsure of what has happened
What has been taken from me
Sitting static  
Dizzy in your love
You spin me in circles
A never ending loop of joy
Oxygen is overrated
All you need to survive is
Love

The words that

my lungs

breathless gasping at fetid air
reckless in this never ending nightmare
derelict and disrepair
death wish traveling nowhere
except
            D
            O
            W
            N


under­ a mound of stone and flowers
twirling aimless in  buffet showers
leaving flesh devoured

by passionate winds  
soul left caged in

self-indulging bones

left to wither to dust
this is the final price
of a wandering lust
a real fool's paradise

we're breathless 'cause we're always chasing us.
running this town then burning it down.
smoke in our lungs and heat on our skin.
both of us the same.
both of us insane.
