we still dead tho


last summer when i awoke for the first time in a long time i found myself overcome with emotion, eager and filled with desire.

the setting september sun leaves room for what i considered my best trait, and the calm that i found in you is now destitute.
i will carve you a path back home if it kills me; i just want you to know that you killed me. i just want to be missed.

you said "you give what you get" and "the world's not out to to hurt me".
deep down i knew you would desert me.
the lessons you taught were the greatest gift you could give me.
to give it another shot could be so easy.

you kicked me out the door when i had just started breathing
i laid tethered to the floor cause only you could stop the bleeding
i had fallen into footsteps i had never seen before
i was scared fucking shitless when you stepped outside the door
