With a tight slap

Life brought me back


I was floating away

In my world of blue roses


And with my jagged fingers

I ripped every petal apart


I was smiling in vain

Now I wither in pain


I remember what you felt like

Sweet and salty memories

Memories that won’t go away

I see you in the darkest hour of the night


One step away from the edge

If I jump… Will I fly again?

Fly back to the place I thought I’d call home

Oh wait! Did I not burn it last night?


Now I fly around in circles…

Feeling trapped in my own mind.


One step from an infinite slumber

So if I cry… Will I believe again?


I can’t run to you…

Distance just killed the maps.


And when you switch off again

I die… just to come back to life.


You asked me to stop. To grow up.

I aged a thousand years last night.


So wish me Happy Birthday and charge me with murder

I just killed who I was to give birth to my doppelganger.
