when people are in love
they often say
they simply fell
tripped over their own two feet
face forward
and into the arms of their beloved

i did more than simply fall
onto the ground of your love

you, for me
were an ocean
and i dived
headfirst
roughly
harshly
almost painfully
into the waters of “you”

i knew i could not swim
but i did so anyway
i was drowning
entangled in you
surrounded by this being of “you”
engulfed in this feeling of “you”

and i did not know what came over me
but i let myself drown
i did not try to swim back up
because if i went back to land,
releasing myself from your grasp
that would mean losing the feeling of “you”

and after
submerging into the depth
the love
the passion
of “you”

how could i ever leave?

i think i forgot my place in the universe
happiness is fleeting and i knew that once
so why do i chase after things that are finite?
why do i conquer and destroy everything in my path?

the world is supposed to be easy for the taking
but the world is taking me

i overdose on everything
i've never known when enough is enough
gluttony, lust, rage
the trifecta rule i always break

everyone is wrapped up in their own universe
struggling with their own problems

so why
do i
expect
someone
to
save
me

The sun is shining and in this field it's warm
But then I think of your eyes
How they were brown like dirt
And suddenly I'm thankful for the heated grass I'm lying on
It shields me from the regret
Of dirt brown eyes and hands fluid like water
Those hands were the unbecoming of me
But then again I can't blame you completely
I was the one who looked down at the dirt and saw you
Instead of staring at the sun ahead of me
I have healed though
I'm surrounded by green grass and enveloped in the sun
Perfect conditions for growth

What if one day, you wake up, realizing how much of an idiot you are for letting someone fool you yet you're still so head-over-heels towards that person.

i came to you when it was all dark
and i thought you led me out of the woods
turns out you just took me deeper in,
left me,
and didn't even leave a bread trail

im not saying i miss you
(although i do)
you were just always there
not as a friend or lover
but as someone who would help me forget

in the beginning i told you and myself that this was temporary
no strings attached
but now we are stuck in a cats cradle
except youve cut the ties
and my subconscious is still flailing for the ropes that you dangle

the big question i guess im asking is
did you use me?
or did i use you?
because in the beginning i called the shots
but now im all used like a washed up disney channel star
