The thought of losing you is scarier than death itself. and if we were ever to part i would spend the rest of my life dying from the poison of a broken heart.
and you make everyday worth living
you make the mundane joyous
you put constellations in my mouth with your tongue
and i never want it to end
i don’t want to be a memory
or a mistake
or the past
– is it too much to ask for forever
the way she speaks of God
is the way i speak of her
now tell me darling,
what do men sacrifice for love
aside from their ego
and they never tell you how to deal with heartbreak over friends
they never tell you how deep the pain runs
but it happens. and you live
but to me you will always be my first love
and no one else can displace the energy and passion i put into you
so i wish you well, but i can’t see this through
you can always call me your home – you could have tried a little harder for us
stop waiting for people to show up
stop waiting for people to care.
stop looking for potential that just isn’t there.
