our fingers intertwined.
staring at the fireworks over the free way,
listening to the cars pass by.
writing endings to stories left untold.
my shirt smells like grass
and i am covered in mud.
leaves begin to fall,
summer has given in.
getting high from breathing,
grasping at fireflies and holding only air.
we will never be able to hold them,
we always miss.
it's nights like this that should last forever.
tomorrow is only there for so long.
eventually we will have to face the truth.
eventually, these fireworks will end.
hold me and tell me i will be alright,
i know it's a lie but it's nice to hear.
i can't run forever,
there are no more circuses to run away to.
i am your heroin.
pump me into your veins and smile.
are you smiling to hide the pain?
or do i just feel that good?
day has come,
it's time to start tearing down the walls.
and rebuild them with misery.
