I sit in swirling silence,
The darkness breathes across my skin.
Moonlight paints the world in silver,
All the stars you see are dead.
The air contains a memory,
Something chasing on regret.
This night is thick with all our choices,
And I can’t waste a single breath.
Make me think of things I left behind,
The beauty all tangled with belief.
I’m gone, my mind is silent-screaming,
“Oh fuck— ohgodnoplease.”
My mistakes taste like candy,
A sweet poison painted on my lips.
If I give in, you’ll kill me any second,
But I only want a smaller death.
