we promised each other,we would always remember,we swore we would never forget.but that was before,back when we were together,we hadn't departed just yet.now, fifty states,and a thousand mistakes,lie between the crux of our brains.and all that I dreamis to reach for the phoneand pretend that you're calling my name.you'll tell me that you miss me,then I'll shout "I feel the same",you'll whisper "I'll be back"
you're still my secret cure of pain.
but instead, I cry a riverand now await the sunfor I don't have the means to build a bridgenor the energy to runacross, to the land of forgetacross, to the land of forgive.
we never planned our death,
we were too hopeful that we'd live.
but we are not immortal,and all good things must end,nothing lasts forever,I just wish that we'd stay friends. because...we promised.we promised.we promised.
instead of suffering in silenceinstead of suffering alonethat would really be the testto prove that you're full grown.
but I can't have what don't exist,and I won't wait around to trybut when I was falling for you fast,it almost felt like I could flyso promises are broken
and really everything must die,
you weren't my first just the first that I chose:
I won't forget the reason why.
so now my heart is piercedwith broken shards of glass
I was a fool to think you'd catch me,I was a fool to think we'd last.
with a thousand hellos and no proper goodbye,
your memory forever remains,I've been trying to forget you,but you're cemented in my brain.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
