and when we kiss,
he says it
leaves him breathless,
is just two awkward kids
reminding each other to breathe,
that's all you need.
let it burn.You always told me to live in my head,More Like This
but you never knew
that secretly my mind was a warzone
just waiting to take over.
(My mind has always been my worst enemy
since it kept me from loving you
when I was convinced you would break my heart,
but I ever knew you secretly
engraved a heart on your wrist
everyday to remind yourself
that everyone deserves to feel love.)
I admit that you always owned my heart
since we convinced ourselves to believe
that we are bulletproof,
but when I saw you shoot the trigger
I knew there was no such things as fairy-tales.
(I always loved the way you laughed
because it reminded me
that I could always hold you high
whenever we were broken
just to feel.)
(Broken hearts aren't supposed to beat,
I'll never stop loving you.)
Scorpiussometimes,More Like This
i wake up with bits of Orion
still stuck between my teeth.
& i grin, remembering
the face of every lover
i’ve managed unscathed,
to crawl out from underneath.
‘ad astra’ inked into ankle bones
like little wings, Pluto’s underworld
ripe, coursing through my veins:
i stake claim to clavicles.
between the constellations
of tongues & weak limbs,
i get off
on all the ways mere mortals
beg me to sacrifice them
to the heavens.
burn it down.She's the girl whose afraid of needlesMore Like This
because ever since she saw her mother die of a needle injection
she's been wanting to give her blood away
just so she can know what it's like to take her final breath.
She's the girl who would listen to the same song on repeat for hours
just to get the same tingling feeling in her heart
because she never wants to let go,
but in reality she's never felt so afraid.
She's the girl who enjoys wearing ripped jeans
and oversized t-shirts,
because she's too afraid to expose herself
to the world
that broke her heart.
She's the girl who smiles over necklaces and promise rings
because she holds them dear to her heart
in a second heartbeat,
how dare you even see a smile.
