Nicotine and Broken Dreams (April 2016)

My breath smells like nicotine
And broken dreams
As I gaze up at the stars
And wonder how you are
I don’t know just how I came to be
But it’s clear to me
That I am falling apart.
Trapped inside my own mind
Knowing that who I need to find
Is someone I never was
So excuse me while I’m lost in this melody
And lose myself to this head rush.

Sunsets and silhouettes are beautiful like
you
But as do they,
They come to an end
And fade out like we do.
We’re all just crowded in the same
notion of “forever”
Settling down at these early ages
Because there isn’t anything better
And I remember often on nights
I would stare into your eyes
And compare you to the light of the moon
Holding on to something that’s gone
But desperately clinging to you.

And if I could just disappear
To get away from here,
Then maybe you could fully let go,
But I don’t have the courage to stop the
blood in my veins
So I guess I’ll never know.

My breath smells like nicotine
And broken dreams
I can’t let you know
That my mouth says, “forget me”
But my eyes say, “don’t let me go.”
