we fell fast and hard, back when dreams ran away
skip into the distance holding hands through the day
far-fetched ideas and a scorn for society
no place in my heart for despair or anxiety.
tired and lost now our dreams aren’t back yet
shoved to the side, soaked in misspent old sweat
left all alone for our new desperate climb
hoping our dreams will return with our time.
touching your skin is a dream I can get lost in
grasping at ropes with connections still so thin
fake smile always taped on for the cameras
wondering why all the others seem glamorous.
dreaming, awake, we still can't touch the ground
scraps of what was now can never be found
love is a trusted leap into the sky
hoping to sprout our new wingspan and fly.
-I wanted everything, but my everything isn’t here right now.
