You’re my sheath
I’m your rapier
Planet starlight chasers excellent
First I cried
Then I laughed until I cried
All day, everyday
I dont need her
I’ll say to myself
Dream your pillow lips
Curves of your hips
Rough and soft
T’ward the skies
She dont need me
She’ll say to herself
And we could’ve been
Each game I try to play
Feels hollowed out
Boomerang back to me now
That old shout
These have never been
My stomping grounds
This was never
Apologies and Thunderstorms *repost
When the thunder shakes your bones
She cries lightning; the death of sorry
It will never mean a damn thing again
Why can’t you just be brave?
The world’s ending and you’re cowering
In the corner like a child, eyes fixed
To the floor crying screaming, hands on
Cupping the ears blocking
All sound comes your way and on it goes
You’ll destroy yourself like this
Why you can’t just be brave?
And take a risk. Take my hand.
And run into everything that’s coming
With me, together
Today, I believe in you
That you still can
Muster the courage to flourish
Abandon your deathwish
And try again, no lies nor pretend
Beckon you I must do
Holding together we’ll mend.
Why cant we just be brave?
Unanswerable until you wish to
it takes real guts to let yourself love.
everyone kicks up a big song and dance every summer
and there’s confetti, and drive-in movies
and acoustic songs with big finishes.
it takes real guts to let yourself love,
to stay and watch the leaves pile up around you -
to watch your feet freeze,
to smile with both sides of your mouth.
it’s easy to compare love to seasons,
but will you be brave
and stay until next year?
Will you be brave…?
