You’re a monster that has no equal,
Loading your insecurities in a needle and injecting them into people.
You have the audacity to say I’m digging my own grave,
but I’m not the one with a shovel and hands covered in shame.
In the end, you can try and blame it all on me,
But I’ll never regret setting myself free.
Watching wildflowers grow in the cracks of sidewalks will always remind me of when
I told you that you could be loved,
but you didn’t believe me then.
Now look at us,
living proof that just because someone has a crumbling past,
Doesn’t mean you can’t build a beautiful future that will last.
I’ve been whispering a thousand breathless lines to a lover that I will never taste.
Every day I’m reminded why spending time on people is such a waste.
When all I can do is promise words that are as temporary as the scent I leave on their bed.
Whenever morning comes,
I’ll quietly leave you sleeping with my ghost inside your head.
