Someday I’ll wish upon a star and
wake up where the clouds are far behind me ~~~ E.Y. Harburg
Stay away, no… come closer.
I can’t decide.
I’ll wake up soon,
The world will be still,
I’ll breathe again.
Left out here on my own,
To piss off the world.
I’d love to throw these stones,
But they’ll come hurling back,
Bruising me deeper with each collision.
I’ll take the blame,
Whatever you need.
No more words drowning out the music,
No more impulses that can’t be controlled,
Just leave, go away,
I should always be alone.
The waves are so high,
They’ll crash on me soon,
Over and over and over.
It’s not brave to accept the inevitable,
There’s nothing poetic in letting go.
Giving up isn’t acceptance,
Caving in isn’t relief,
I’m not so… delicate.
… and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. ~~~ E.Y. Harburg
