We were so young once.

Laying in the grass-

Perfectly matching your eyes

I could feel normal,

While my heart leaps out of my chest.

What if we are all just fantastical figments-

A china chess piece

In an intricately woven tale,

As crazy as the stars disappearing-

As explosive as the daisies scattered in your flames.

Our twisted paths-

Have forever been intertwined,

Me, with my dark curtains,

You, with your smiles tasting of sunshine

That echo through my blackened soul.

Together you went down

Lost to an unworthy cause,

My mind sets my thoughts on fire

Standing out in the rain one Autumn night.

Your life belonged to another-

I couldn't breathe as I once did

Your voice violently calls out to me while I stare into nothing.
