Will it be okay?

it’s chaos, it’s a little dark. emphasis on the “little” because i know that it always isn’t this way and i know that it never is “very” dark. it’s still chaos.

we speak words of love so often but forget that i’m a little emotionally unstable. no emphasis on “little” here as i am lying. i’m “very” unstable.

one moment i’m the happiest and then the trigger is pulled

i’m angry. i’m pissed off. i don’t want to be here and i’d rather slip into my bed and dream about a world without you in it.

i stop indulging. i wake up guilty
very guilty
very very angry, but this time at myself

i’m anxious now, a little more than i was when we first fought about that little-tiny-matter...

he was here when
i first saw snow
oh how happy was i
it was a real life wonder, and on that day, i was too

he was here when
i looked failure
in the eye and turned (crying)
he looked me in the eye, did it get any better? (yes)

he was here
when i stayed home
when i felt like going outside (not very far)
when i laughed so much my left eye watered

he was here when
i fell sick
it was rough
it was tough

but so was he
i’m sitting with him
maybe with a foot apart between us two
he is here, and i’m glad

i would want you
i have a tendency however
to play
fire is and never was something
to play with

you move fast
from here to wherever it is that you want
things are hazy yet so very
hot (it’s burning)
you are fire

i had known
this, first impressions are accurate (at times)
for very long, yet
i also knew that
i had that tendency that we spoke of

so here we are now,
breathing the smoke
i’m trying to keep up
with you
and your fire

i’ll be here
reading that essay full of jargon
typing hurriedly, will i run out of time?
will i make the most of my time?

i’ll be here
sleeping in
sleeping in my bed, will i run out of time?
probing, proving, running (away)

i’ll be here
wondering about you
thinking about how we feel
will we grow older with time?
will we lose this magic (i hope we don’t you know?)

i’ll be here, hoping
that your eyes don’t tire
of looking at me
i look at you too, my heart on a wire,

time is tricky you see, we gain we lose,
we live, is it time?
i’ll be here, love
i hope you’re here too
will we make the most of our time?
