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.
Stab me, like there’s no tomorrow
I can handle the pain.
You cut me with your shitty words
But I can always lick my wounds.
You shoot with dagger looks
But I have my bullet-proof.
If life was pain and it was you,
I’ll gladly embrace it.
I was the masochist in your sadist state,
You the Master and I like the Slave.
I chose you when you chose me,
I love you more when you hurt me.
I was a living dead before,
Then you came and awakened my soul.
Hush now and sleep my dear
Tomorrow will be a beautiful morn.
Gently wrap your fingers around mine
And safely sail your dreams with my embrace.
Drop your anchor and lay your troubles
So long buried underneath.
The storm you faced has just passed
and you’ve held your head high.
You’ve been shielding yourself from the waves of pain
Crashing you down with its weight.
I’ll be the rock to your tears
The balm to your fears.
So slowly close your eyes and just breathe
And like music you’ll hear my heartbeat.
Let me carry you through this night
Where you’ll be at ease and be.
You’ve haunted my mind
You’re the unavoidable plague
I have desired.
My skin tingles with excitement
Hearing the sound of your voice
Like the sound of distant shores.
Distance has kept us apart
But memories of you still linger
Every time I see someone smile.
Let me tell you that I’m a ruined soul
I’m the piece of crap everyone throws away
When the thing has outlasted its value.
You’re my angel, my hope
My only connection from insanity
From the past I used to walk on to.
I hope you’re well for here I am
Still searching for light from the darkness
That has kept me from reaching out to you.
