"You know, I wish we could just lie here,
Never get up, sleep, just be here, forever."
You whispered the words in my ear,
and my mind knew they were absurd.
Here? Forever? How? We would need to eat
to drink, to subsist...
but those ideas, thoughts were drown out
Snuffed by the frantic, incredible pounding
that was lodged in my ribcage.
"Well..." The words dribbled out of my mouth,
"Why couldn't we?"
I knew the idea was absurd, crazy.
People would look for us.
You confirmed my idea.
"Our parents would kill us"
I let out a soft sigh. I knew the idea had ended.
Somehow, somewhere, however, deep within my mind,
The idea had forced itself somewhere permanent.
and as absurd and crazy as the idea was,
To sleep, never move, perhaps just lie until the end.
Until someone found us, until we lost all reason.
until we faded away.
As absurd as the idea was, somewhere, somehow,
I still think it's worth it.
