I woke up this morning with too many racing thoughts.

Too much shame and insecurity being pulled by the darkest demons of my soul once more unbound...
they grabbed the bends of
My ribcage as if their hands belonged there. They ripped me
Open to show you a heart that was barely beating.

I scared you away. 

I tried so hard to pretend i was fine but i could sense you saw right through.

Now I'm home pulling strands
Of your hair away from my clothes and with every one that falls away the knots in my stomach tighten.

How bright the foolish future i saw with you burned...
How quickly those feelings fell away when you proclaimed you wanted
To be just friends.

For i know deep down the truth in the words not said

Ive chewed through a pack of bubble gum
And smoked too many cigarettes.

I brushed twice and gargled enough mouthwash for a week

Yet the only taste that lingers is you.
Our last kiss will haunt me forever
 there was no
Love left on your lips. 

If this was my only chance...
Which i now
Know too painfully well that it was

At least i got to hold you tight and kiss you deep
I got to pretend, if only for but just a little while that, i could be happy and that i could make you happy too.
