Brighter lights cast darker holes in my soul
Would you know if I told you to?
Lift me up past the rocks and the dirt and the drugs that I took.
It was enough.
I mistook you for angels in paramedic suits,
flashing reds and blues.
If I could I would choose you.
Bite my lip so I won't talk,
but we're just kids with sidewalk chalk.
Run back to class for show and tell.
I'll wait my turn but there's the bell
for the announcer to say:
"Flight 32. Now take her away,"
from you for good.
There's no use arguing my case
if I'm found guilty in every state of mind you try,
Farewell blue eyes.
I will love you until I die
or at least until the next pretty girl sits by my side.
My new favorite waste of time.
