Life was only worth living With SSRIs in the system It was only a matter of time Before I regressed without them Back to the bottom Another AllTimeLow The headaches The despair The empty If I can’t live without you Do I even deserve to live with you
Hours passed Until we slipped away From the plane of existence And the pain of persistence Into a world where everything just worked All the pieces fit together Beautiful harmonies our ears were deaf to Beautiful colors our eyes were blind to And the lights danced for us They don’t do that for everyone And they won’t do that forever So let’s vibe while the vibes are good
Out of dust we are, Which answers the question Of why I love the rain, Skin run along like sandpaper, Scratching and mostly unpleasant I have been made in the rough And the rough I have become But when the scent of rain comes I can’t help but let myself Become soft to its touch.
Run along to make the feeling Of my skin more pleasant But why does it stop so suddenly? A month straight of rain And no sun Then all gone in an instant Letting the skin I let get soft Crack and bleed From the lack of your touch. Where did it go? Who thought it was okay To tell someone you loved them the day before, So they woke up the next Blocked.
Why would I trust Why do I risk this again and again When all I ever get for it in the end Is a head full of questions And both hands empty Except for the warmth of her hands That seemed to be there only moments ago But no more holding your hands Because you left And I’m left holding Holding questions Again
Invisibility is a cliché wish, But a night spent staring at the ceiling Or the wall With the feeling of existence Washed to the minimum By consumption, Creates a similar feeling Of invisibility to the senses.
I wish not for invisibility, I wish to be your ghost For exclusively your eyes To witness me As a shooting star Scratches the sky Leaving no trail For those who missed it. I hope I don’t miss The trail of the gentle scratch You leave in your last touch, Letting this fleeting moment pass Without recognition until lost.
If you spend forever in a single moment, It’s not just a moment anymore, For if you lose sight of me, I'll erode away in the river That you'll toss me in. Emergence to accept defeat That I let such a moment Dissipate to become a lifetime Of regret is the pressure point In my mind regarding you. Losing you now would be unforgivable, Don’t let me go.
Sometimes the heart of a poet cracks And before they can worry About stopping the bleeding They spill a little out on the page
The things my heart bleeds for I would share them with you And I have The parts of life that make it worth living I’d share them with you And I have
But at the end of my rope When the well has run dry When staring at this doc a second longer Could push me over the edge I give in and write something uninspired Or even a joke And that’s what goes viral. ******* for that.
It’s a taste on the tongue like peppermint As invasive on the sinuses as mothballs, It’s the precision of a samurai sword across a palm, With the brutality of a gladius twisting against ribs More infectious than the black death, And no cure to stop. GL HF my friend, For we are all claimed by something, And one by it every forty seconds.
To those who have everything, More will be given, To those who have nothing, More will be taken. I just hope that living in between both extremes Could lend me a lifetime of the seasoning You pinch on my days Providing hope in me through your delicacies. Don’t worry about something That you don’t know. Don’t spend time wishing When these moments are passing. The love I give is an eternally full cup With no bottom. Pour yours into mine, And let's see where these moments take us.
