Crush

Crush

You are the sum of my demons

The light in my shadows

A beautiful distraction,

A dream I never had.

 

You are the words behind my silence,

My compass in the night

My comfort from weariness,

A star I can never hold.

 

I should have grabbed the chance

To utter words unspoken,

But my lips were sealed,

And I ran away.

 

Forgive my awkwardness,

For my heart is made of paper

And I have to bottle it up

So it won’t leak.
