new year

cigarette and thinking

about you

park and the rolling stones

I want to call 

but for some reason

I can’t

I’m scared and sad

as if I’m not ready 

yet

not ready for this yet

what will happen?

I want to call 

but I can’t

I’m not in love

I’m shaking, small

‘beautiful day...’ ironic

I’ve had a horrible day

ache ache ache

body shakes

I’ve wanted to see you

for so long

break don’t break

I’m not calm

I’m not strong

the world is shaking

the world is shaking me

it’s burning red

mean, mean red

 

A hundred songs fighting

a hundred tears hiding

I’m not calm and I

don’t want to say that

smoking helps me write

I’m shaking, shaking

waiting, waiting

I’ve been waiting so long.
