if you could taste the deception as it dribbles from your mouth looking to your lips, awaiting the words it's almost amusing your wide-open chestnut eyes alluring and deceiving and always shifting so persuasive, i want to believe every word so seductive, illusions serve only you struggling to align a thousand lies your truth cracks, and trusting is foolsplay detecting is effortless, understanding is arduous it scares me to know that somehow you enjoy this with your vacant head and selfish fucking heart BARREN OF EMOTION feeling nothing for anyone you'll depart alone like me

given to darkness colder now, with weakness i cry out how i hope my outlook will change i once was young slight of frame, but it mattered not for the world wasn't so heavy back then darkness won't consume me hatred won't become me weakness won't befall me I WILL NOT BE COLD it seems so bleak inside my thoughts and those rays seem faint but i tell you this i think the light is winning
the problem lies within you and so i cannot let it affect me or who i am where i am, and where i come to be, you won't get in between who i am, and who i come to be i can only be responsible for my own actions NOT YOURS pull me out, lift me up never again shall cruel words pierce through my exterior pull me out from the fracture in the earth that i fell into lift me up let me stand beside my friends let them remind me uninfluenced by anything you do
Fortrose 04:00
the only thing harder than walking away is not looking back i'll show you, i'll lead the way mistakes should be learned from then discarded mind infected with questions gather them all up residing inside each of us, reach in and extract sorrow, fear, doubt lust, intolerance, envy demons to expel, reject the wrongs that limit you long to be held in that merciful light write down these feelings rip them up

"always and forever" was how the contract was signed if you could copy a feeling into someone else maybe they would understand how you feel inside maybe they would realise your will words have no true meaning in this world in this perfect moment with my heart strings pulled so tight that i can't see dark for light a glow i want to share everyone that i love is there a lifetime filled with cherished moments will you ever know?
as soon as the eyes lock in one single instant a relation is born in a glimpse stories that can't be untold just one glimpse even after faces fade of success and adventure of worry and regret and of will at times you'll feel it the warmth you once knew in your innocent age your angelhood betrayed like gold dissolved washed away but when it returns eyes will meet eyes willing to recall end the search, learn gentleness after a while we'll find what we're looking for and someday we may even find more when a glance can shift into a smile
expanding our horizons without maps without a guiding light a daunting task to face but fear not my friend i will bear the brunt of collisions we face the hits and set backs, failures lift you up make you fearless lift you up above this lift you, make you fearless without a guiding light it's a daunting task to face the highest height to scale but fear not my friend for i will lift you up with shoulders to lift and sustain with hope i'll side, fearless and kind with hope i'll find the strength to clear this sky
