Stare me down with made up memories and haunt my dreams in such sinful ways. Replace blank stares with knowing smiles, step down that self built up pedestal and hopefully see whom I really am. So pass that joint bury the past surreptitiously. Time to free ourselves just a little bit. Talk it out they say but that won't help if we have no way of loosening our tongues. Kiss me as if it's your first time and let me breathe a new type of world in you. This hidden dream captivates your eyes and I swear my body glows after your touch. Reprimand those thoughts once more but you and I secretly know that name cements my feet in place, don't overlook those stinging words, they burn my heart and fuel the doubt. Whispy lies take hold of my mind and off we go to bittersweet memories. My plane is higher and my vision's stronger and mysteries are now made clear. Sleep is impossible when we're so far away but do not dwell on what if's and give a smile for that lovely joy. I laugh because nothing is ever the same yet we're all afraid of change. Take my hand because tonight is almost over and I want tomorrow to start off right.
You surround me As a coat on winter days I'm perplexed by these emotions I could've sworn they'd left long ago Hold me tighter As does a frightened child to her mother I cannot grasp the How or Why The concept of Who is too bewildering You start to whisper Past secrets only you and I know I'm overwhelmed Shall we splash a little paint? These white walls ache for some color You laugh Happy that I'm back I replay the scene in my mind Paintbrush in hand, I get to work Red is such a nice color You reassure me Like a coach on game day Haven't I lived through this before? Must I really do this? It was so long ago I drop the paintbrush I've come to love these white walls
