i stand in the midst of wreckage, wondering when it all went wrong 
i have watched our separation a million times yet i still can't see your face 
bring me to my knees, i can no longer see the sky
i pray to the ground, groveling 
    
    'save me' 


my smile is a little strained. you don't look at me,
i just keep on laughing.
you and i—maybe this was meant to be.
like the sun bleeds out over the clouds
and pulls the earth around it. 
like the mirror breaks when i
look into it.  
all i can see are your eyes dulling like soft 
silver. we were nothing ordinary, perfectly
unordinary, don't you think? 
just us, in the plummeting daylight. 

it's only you, the one i desire. 
just you, the azure that peels off the sky
and lands perfectly around our feet. 
we can override 
destiny at 5:53, just 
take my hand and we can 
leap into the illusion. just
take my hand, and don't let go.

bathed in this luminous orange
glow, this dying day: swallow it
like sweet wine—won't you
run away with me? this sand castle won't 
fall, this us that we once held won't 
disappear. let's burn a 
fragment of our past lives into the 
setting sun and live forever. 

in this blue hour, i want to
hold your hand and never leave. in this
blue hour, we'll take the universe as ours. 
in my imagination, we are soft and we
are beautiful. we can stay
in this chink in between worlds and be 
immortal. can you feel the rush? 
it's right under your fingers, this
magical day. don't tear it away— 
don't tear it away. i'd be happy
even if i were imprisoned here, if only
you remained. 

clock hands pulled taut, let's
rewind time. my heart that
was in ashes gathers in your palm 
and blows away. it was only
a dream, a broken reality. the sun is
falling falling, don't go
don't leave me. 

bathed in this blazing orange glow, this
burning day, consume it like fire. 
abandon it, the flames and the
endless pain. the end of the
world never came, reality is only
a lie. in the light of dusk, we 
are somehow pulling apart. 

in this blue hour, i want you to 
call my name again. in this blue hour, 
we'll turn our flaws into beautiful crowns.
there is no loneliness, no suffering here.
my imagination is bursting into 
multicolored fireworks. you are still 
by my side and smiling gently. we can 
stay in this split between dream and
reality at 5:53, can you feel the rush? 
before you leave i want to capture 
you in my eyes and never let go. 







 
very inspired by: you and i found in the sky at 5:53 (blue hour) by tomorrow x together. 

sort of sequel to let fire engulf this magic island of ours ;) ;) ;) opening epigraph is from there as well. 

if you can find all the references to txt's other songs, i applaud you. i have four tabs of genius english translations pulled up lol. this is probably my favorite album (definitely not conclusive) from txt thus far. it was just so chill and exactly what i needed in these times. if you're open to kpop, i'd definitely recommend the entire ep. 

(yes, this follows the song structure. also yes, i skipped like a whole verse. it was getting long.)

    Suga is first Oikawa is second and third I've never thought of the third guy XD so don't really know who to go with. Maybe, asahi? or kenma? Or kuroo? Tho really idk but I've named a lot as well so no worries XD

    Yes and yes! But noooooooo! Oikawa may be good and all but the one who truly resides in my heart is Sugawara! Tho you've watched Haikyuu? That's awesome. Who's your favourite after Oikawa?

    Ok this. This is beautiful, wow. Idk what more to say—this may or may not have taken away all my words?? Wow.
    "all i can see are your eyes dulling like soft silver. we were nothing ordinary, perfectly unordinary, don't you think? / just us, in the plummeting daylight" woah i love this line. Actually, I love the whole first stanza. That's just. Stunning.

    My bias would be Taehyun and my favourite songs from the album would be Way home and we lost the summer (but honestly I can't choose between these two). This album is soothing so I love it way too much then I should. Especially way home is such a bop. I kinda wrote my new poem with inspiration from way home XD since everything seemed changed to them.

    the flow, the eloquent language, the artistry... i can only aspire to have your level of talent when i'm older... seriously, this is so beautiful it almost hurts? like i felt the words, i felt it all... i love it. these lines spoke to me, though:
    "my heart that
    was in ashes gathers in your palm
    and blows away. it was only
    a dream, a broken reality. the sun is
    falling falling, don't go
    don't leave me."
    ahhhh the repetition! i feel it all! thank you for this.
