this world gets scary sometimes
when i try to sleep, and i know that your hands
might not last another night
to hold mine
again

when i realise the fear,
the music and the smiles might just drown out
the only smile that has made
this existence mean
something

-

i heard about a girl
who drove on the wrong side of the highway
because she didn't know what else to do
she killed six people

i wonder what will happen
when we collide; will we burn out
or fade away, a pile of
charred metal and dreams
thrown away?

-

i know you are still the boy
who cries because he misses his mum,
because the creases in your palms
have not changed
and the uncertainty in your voice
still wavers
sometimes

my bones waste away
under the command of your voice,
slurred and vague
because you are the only thing
i will let hurt me

-

but writing poems about you
has always been a bad omen
we live on the cusp of death
thinking that it won't be us

Nice. You paint such vivid images in the mind. If I could draw better I'd show you want I see when I read these poems.

Words. Where to find them? I love these lines so, so much. I just cant form the words to creatively describe how much.
