I’m not one to let go

but even I know that you’re twisted,

trying to conjure a fight

from thin air.


I’m not one to open my eyes

when light shines through your skin,

but only because I’m surrounded

by the twilight you’ve created.


You think you’re giving me

what I want,

but I only want it

because it’s been given,

and pulling me apart

isn’t going to save me.


You’re made of mesmerizing insanity

chaos I thought I bargained for

but tearing out my heart

just because I don’t want to stare down change

isn’t going to save me.
