Measure us in latex wrappers
something we can pile up
it makes the days seem more tangible
than emotions
just like I’ll get lost in cigarette boxes
and a tray of ashes
when i burn up as you walk away
vampires on dark corners thrown into sunshine
I’m waiting till you get bored
counting the minutes of me you can take
wondering if you’ll leave me today
they are white they are yellow they are blue
my friends I swallow so I can lose you
for a girl who’s always in love
I never met my match
scared to breathe or blow away
this stack of happy memories
when did I start getting what I want?
they say to trust it
enjoy it
embrace it
I’m waiting until i have to get over you
and if I’ll even make it when i do
haven’t been truthful with myself in a long time
photo effects on my own life
there’s a moment before i sleep when i beg
please let me keep
this one
