we watch the sun shrink together
the tears have dried on your face
you know what you're leaving behind
and you can't seem to look at what's beside you
i don't want to tear my eyes away from the end
but i choose to focus on you
i am here for you
it's starting to grow colder
the light is fading
you finally start to look at me
i can't tell if it's because something changed in you
that makes you want to actually see me
or that i'm the last person you want to see
before the light goes out
is this the moment i finally say something?
if i'm certain the sun will burn out
i can't contain what i feel about you, truly.
let's say right now, as you have now turned to me
you know these are the final moments
there is no one else
will you accept my dying requests?
are you willing to bring me close
as you once did with someone else
steal away the last moments to be one of our first
pretend the past isn't important
there is no more silent hatred
there never was
you should know everything i wanted was to give you everything
so please steal my final breaths from me before the world does
it's so vivid it hurts. so real, as if i were really there with you and you turned me away. i hope you're willing to stick around and see what else i create. thanks and love you. have a good night.
