It’s just you and me now.



They say that time heals

But they don’t know a thing.

Time doesn’t heal

It’s a core with a string.


They say time brings acceptance.

Again, they are wrong.

I don’t accept it.

But who cares, cause I’m strong.


The strain on my heart

Like a push and a pull.

Tied up in knots

The lemonade’s still full.


Rubber bands everywhere

Looks sloppy, people stare.

Your music still plays.

Too lazy to care.


The strands of my hair

Still lying on your floor.

There won’t be a next time.

It’s a four-sided door.


The chill is still shakey

The night is still blue

Part of me’s aching.

I wish that you knew.


This hole feels so empty

When darkness comes near.

Living without you.

Sad, but no tears.


I try not to show it.

The silence picks a fight.

Forget you, forget you

My silence, my light.


Roads are so long now.

They’re actually quite short.

Quiet and deserted

Memories abort.


Clawing to breathe.

Grasping for air.

I know and you know

The love is still there.


Blurry with visions.

My head’s on a cloud.

Lying here naked

Embracing this crowd.


Crawling back to me

Cause you fell and you fell.

Empty but warm there

The linger of my smell.


I knew you’d be waiting

Like December in the rain.

I’d knew you’d come to me

But you left me in pain.


The time is now here.

But really it’s gone.

It doesn’t exist now.

Go on, but be strong.


Don’t cry cause you miss me.

Don’t cry cause you care.

Your tears are so empty

Selfish in despair.


Your words have new meaning

Fire and destroy.

Starting all over

A girl and a boy.
