and massage my heart into beating
just one more time.
If you could understand the hunger of hunger itself
and starve my fears to death,
until they curl up and fall away like leaves to the ground.
If you could hold the hands of time as if they were my own
just to make the night last longer for us in this double bed.
If you could tenderly breathe into the four empty chambers of my heart,
until they glow bright like windows that belonged to
a higgledy-piggledy inn on some dark, wet, cobbled street of old.
If you could write me a letter to describe your feelings and mine,
just because no one does that anymore...
You would be the answer
to every question
I've ever asked myself
after every heartbreak,
and you would be the candle that cursed the damned darkness,
and lit a fire in my very soul,
burning all old wounds

He can't be.
But who is he?
What's his history?
A foreign mystery.
His accent masks the panic
deep in our throats waiting to scream.
Instead he whispered,
"Do as I, run away."
but a king can't live without his queen.
He's talking crazy like a patient off his meds.
He went out guns blazing and painted everything red.
He stole my heart
odds against us
so I fled.
He broke my heart because he is dead.
