Souled Out

❝will you still smile at me
when the world is burning?❞

he didn't like the way his heart fluttered when he thought of his enemy, the way he found himself yearning for those smiles and the few genuine laughs. they were supposed to be separate, fighting for their own causes, weapons aimed at the other's throat. but, instead, he found himself here, laying underneath the stars and pointing out all the constellations his enemy couldn't name. what a fool he was, what a fool they were. this wouldn't last. the world was never kind to those who deviated from their paths.

we like to smile at each other
hold each other close
laugh at the stars
but we hide

even together
we are so alone
that we play pretend
and say it's all good

you tell the truth
and i keep saying lies
two heads to a coin
you and i
