SalemI was too little to remember the day we met.
You came into my life, and changed it forever.
We grew together..
You where always there for me.
Everyday when i came home from school for 12 years, you where there; waiting.
When things got bad, you where there to lick my tears and nudge my face.
I told you all my secrets, and it didnt matter to you.
You still loved me the same.
When everyone would leave for days at a time, you where the one to stay with me.
You where the reason i tried to be better
Its been 18 years..
And now you're gone..
You're not here to lick the tears that come easy now.
You're not here to stay with me when everyone else goes away..
What am i going to do without you..
You're my best friend
And even though you're gone i still love you more than anything.
Just because i cant see you on the corner of my bed doesnt mean you're not still living in my heart and memories.
I love you
StayI stood on the back steps, consenting the smoke to saturate my lungs
Something you never approved of
You layed in the darkness, chewing the cuts on your fingertips
There is a unique safeness in unrequited love
That kind of love could be endless; as long as you don't let it become more than that
Along with unbroken emotions that come with making something real, comes the probability of it all being shattered
But we where usually on the same page
You kiss my forehead and run your fingers over my incision ridden arm
Upon suffering your own innermost frays, you could never accept my compliments
And i could never stop the memories from flickering inside my mind.
Slipping into your arms was something i was getting used to.
Of course, a constant surge of apprehension was something i also, had gotten used to
But as i took my walls down brick by brick, your words became eternal sunshine for my hectic mind..
striking chords that maybe should have never been
You managed to ever so gently wrap you
