from you i can’t be away

i wish you’d disobey

my wishes for one last time

and ask me to stay

I held my breath

Hoping I wouldn’t have to let this go

But when I blinked

It was gone.

we’re like water and fire.

blood is thicker than water
so youre pumped through my veins
i’m on the edge of fire and disaster
so you are my flame

the way you move against me

while you sleep

is more poetic

than anything

i will ever pen

You were once my place of warmth and protection.
But the rain can’t stay out.

I fear I’ve lost all passion
Would you mind injecting yours
Into my mind?
You seem to have enough to spare

He is a holiday I would dedicate decorating my whole house to
I’ll play his voice on my radio
While I string his bones and wrap them around a tree
Or around me
Because his body always knew how to keep mine warm
Even when we weren’t touching
I never kissed him at the end of the night
For the sole reason that I’m afraid of endings
And committing my lips
To something as frail and unsure
As this

New Song Preview(:

I’m a little bit stronger
For a little bit longer
But I still need you
Will you show me the way to your heart
I don’t know how to let go
I don’t know how to win you over
I should’ve known by now

We all have stories we’ll never tell

Skeletons buried deep within our closets

Small cuts of flesh

Hanging on their bones

I wish I could kill them all

You don’t own me

Send away your spies

I do what I want

It’s my life
