I only have one request

That we remember who we were

Our perception was blurred

Our subconscious could see clearly

That there was nothing left

 

Our walls came tumbling down

Our hearts slid to our sleeves

It felt as though the ground had parted from our feet

In this moment we were left utterly weightless

The safety we had been searching for was found

 

We created a home within our hearts

The only flaw are our faulty keys

for we never keep them attached to you or me

They dissolved within our bloodstream

We promised to stay this way when reality restarts

 

Slowly as the sun comes up

we are pulled back behind our guarded gates

It felt as though there were seas we crossed

Those seas transmute to poisoned lakes

We hide from the pain, our souls numb

 

Remembrance of my request slowly fades

Maybe who we were isn't who we are

We want to allow love

When we're sober, love is hard

Yet, recollection of our connection vaguely intoxicates
