I Remember

I remember

Trying to keep up with your creativity

Sending you a picture and realizing you were into me

Asking questions I thought were dumb but wanted to understand

You showin up with that crazy ass pair of headphones and the shoulder bag

And so much more

Thing big coumphy couch but inhibition was on the floor

Leaving you in my room and the little cute friend knocks on the door

I remember

One night when you slept over

I heard your breath

I heard you searching for me momentarily

Then you came and curled up next to me

And I knew you would have a piece of me

Indefinitely

Sleep Walker

I used to think all the monsters lived under my bed
Then one day i realized
Some of them moved to my head
Close my eyes and through my thoughts they start to creep
As i lay me down they haunt me in my sleep
Distant memories
Starting to become real to me
Walking and talking
Theyre starting to appeal to me
Luring me deeper and darker
My sanity creeping farther and farther
Lucid thoughts becoming a thing of the past
The bindings of my brain becoming fluid as they slip past
Wondering how long my strength will last
As i silently battle these demons of my past…

Behind your words

I see a secret

One I could never ask you for

But I fear that you’ll always keep it

Hidden in a spot that I cant reach it

But I can see it

See what it does to you

The ghost of a past that you should never run to

And I hear you on your knees at night asking God why

Asking him to send some angel to be by your side

And in the night I wishper

Ive arrived

No fairy dust

No magic wands

I cant wave the pain away

But I will protect you from future harm

Before

You could only trust your ghosts to never leave

But now I promise

You can trust in me

No matter where you are

Youll never be

Too far from my mind

Or memory

It’s a sin to me

To ever be

Less than what you

Need from me

And im on a mission to sin no more

Life without transgression is what I want to explore

And you are the gateway

You’re the door

Could get to heaven as is

But you need more

So tell me what you want from me

Nothing would please me more

Than fighting off your deamons

And becoming the one you adore

Sleep

you are no friend to me

i need our relationship to end

but the more i avoid you

the more you force my hand

i need your sneak attacks

and slight of hand to end

Cuz the more you take control of me

the more I fail my friends

if you were a friend to me

you would let this end

I shouldn’t be thinking about you

I shouldn’t be dreaming about you

Remembering what I miss about you

Or wishing I could have you all alone

And a long time ago I should have

Deleted you from my phone

But now I see your name

And the face

And I realize none of it is gone

It was just sidelined

Now I gotta ask myself how many times

I lied

Look at the man in the mirror and

Convince him though I tried

He knew no matter what my lips were saying

What I really carried inside

Others look into my eyes thinkin they see themselves

But it was just you in a disquise

They don’t understand

That its you that I cant get past

And until im finally through with you

Nothing else can last

I wish I may

I wish I might

Naw

Fuck that shit

All I wish is this

That when you close your eyes

You wish for me

Cuz I know I can be all you ever

Wished for him to be

I know that I can

Kiss away your sorrows

Wash them away like rain

Hit your body like dopamine

Take away your pain

Leave your tears with him

You wont need them again

Pen the vision of what you’ve been missin

With the power of my pen

Im you personal genie

Just rub my lamp

Only you can free me

Id rather live in this eternal solitude

Than let any other man try to be me

I say try

Cuz try as they might

Im the only one whose properly equipped to

Put up this fight

Cuz this is a battle of wills

Between you an me

You fear that when the time comes

Ill pack up and run

That when the going gets tough

Ill get going

Cuz in truth

You have no way of knowing

But believe me

As your genie

I promise to make your reality

Whatever you want it to be

Now Tell me

What is it that you want from me

What pretty pieces of deception

Will you pen me tonight?

What perfectly picturesque fairytales

Will you paint into my eyes?

As the night draws to a close

I look forward to those

Words

Those dreams you create for me

The reality that you construct

The truth that you take from me

Because I love the way you lie

I love the way you slant the world

So I don’t have to cry

I love the way you put shooting stars

Into a cloudy stormy night

And in this blissful ignorance I refuse

To open my eyes and ask how or why

Armed with a pen and a stanza

We all become pretty little liars

Matchstick men who set the world ablaze

Always start out setting pretty little fires

And whether you want it or not

You can give it all you’ve got

But it can’t always be something beautiful

For the situation that you’re in it simply becomes suitable

So quickly

Please

Lie to me

Before the novelty wears off

Paint me a new perception before I begin

Analyzing the costs

Before the doubters and the realist arrive

Pen me a new piece of perfect

I need your lies to stay alive

Whisper to me that its worth it

I can’t live inside this world

I need your deception

I can’t survive inside this matrix

I need your inception

Induce me and then seduce me

Replace me with a fake me before you wake me

Convince me that you miss me

Break my heart before you kiss me

After all this losing

Promise me I’m about to win

I love it when you lie to me

Over and over again
