there is something to be said
about resisting the temptation
to start out with a bang.

the hallway of your neck
has never lost its scent
and it's something, i swear,
i swear, i can never forget

because it's something surreal
to wake up while you're asleep
and feel you pull me closer
til our faces almost meet-

but please,
hold onto that almost,
hold onto it like stardust.

you need to touch me in a whisper
because it's been too long
since i've felt the hand of someone
who actually meant it,
someone who actually meant something

and i'm so glad, my god,
i'm on my knees
i am praying to(o,) my god
that we won't burn out so quick this time,
i'm too tired to bear new scars

i just want you to love me
but that's not something i could ever ask.
just some time maybe,
i know that no august moon can watch us forever
and keep us warm,
and no constellation can teach me everything
i've ever needed to know.

but everything ugly i ever saw about you
and everything unflattering?
it's gone like the magic we buried beneath your basement
when we sold ourselves to other dreams
we realise only now could come true
if when one would happen, the other would too.
cautiously hopeful warning to myself.

oh yes, please, mean something, it's so much better when it means something, when it means everything. an 'i want you' touch has absolutely nothing on an 'i cherish you' touch.

"i'm too tired to bear new scars

yes. just. yes. this. breakups and heartbreak are exhausting. and all you can do is love them.

Beautiful. :heart: True, take your time. There's no hurry and the last you need is another crash and burn. Good luck :heart:
