Daydream

Give me a night alone in my room.

Give me attention but also solitude.

Keep me warm, build me a fire,

Kiss me softly as a grow tired.

Love me gently, but hit me rough.

My body is soft but my mind is tough.

Tell me stories to ease my head,

Please don’t leave me alone in bed.

I want so badly to be free.

Take this life away from me.

Give me pills that make me sleep,

Never again would you hear me weep.

Exhaustion

I’m tired of empty apologies,

Of drunken phone calls,

I’m tired of these tired words,

That mean nothing to you.

 

I’m tired of trying for you over and over,

I’m tired of you acting like a stranger,

I’m tired of your jealousy,

The pathetic way you contradict yourself.

 

I’m tired of staring at your name in my contact book,

Not having the heart of throw away your number,

I’m tired of playing our memories over in my mind,

I’m tired of crying myself to sleep because the loneliness is overwhelming,

I’m tired of writing about you,

But I can’t get you out of my head any other way.

 

 

I’m sorry

I’m sorry about the bruises

You got from trying to climb the walls

I built about myself

 

They are tall and strong

But they are what

keep me safe

 

I’m sorry about your eyes

They way the leaked over me

Was never something I intended to happen

 

I’m sorry about your bones

And the way they took home in my bed

After I stopped leaving my room

 

I’m sorry about the blisters and burns on your feet

You got after walking miles for me

Just for me to tell you to go back home

 

I’m sorry about your ears

And the way my lies will forever echo

In the drum like I almost loved you

 

I’m sorry about the taste I left in your mouth

Because no matter how badly you want to wipe it away

You won’t dare because it’s sweet and rare and irreplaceable

 

I’m sorry about your bed

And the way it’s filled with

Our memories and my scent.

 

I’m sorry

I’m sorry

I’m sorry

Addison

I hope you cry for me one day,

The way I cried for you.
