i know its wrong but sometimes i dream up what you're feeling
you can't blame me because you never tell me
you say one thing and then another
confusion lines my lips everytime we speak
sun rays sparkle in the night and i don't know if
its the darkness playing tricks again

smiles that feel like swords
because they weren't there yesterday
make up your mind before my world collapses
small talk burns anger onto shards of red stained glass
surface level never felt so unfulfilling
i don't care if we're nails on a chalkboard
tell me everything you are
flood me with the noise that keeps us apart

you've never asked me
why's it so difficult to want to know how i am?
you don't care for just another
i won't overthink it
i'll end up drinking perfume that doesn't sit well

    Woah, I love the imagery and poetry of this! Beautiful!
    re: No apologies for freaking out! They are worthy of freaking out over. As a poet, I am so inspired by all of their lyrics and writing and they definitely are a sort of holy trinity for me, so nice to find someone else who also loves all three!

    Re: Thanks! If you learn his story that stanza actually makes even more literal sense. ;) And yes of course I would never keep something as cool as that a secret.

    "sun rays sparkle in the night and i don't know if

    Oooh that imagery is very effective.
    "make up your mind before my world collapses"
    Oof that's good.
    "flood me with the noise that keeps us apart"
    Adding substance to a sense is just amazing.
    I love this piece as usual.
