Seven Syllable Phrases
It's been ages since we've been here
I thought we could make it work,
Wrecked my mind to be sure
It was a mistake I could bare

I'll be your stability,
Fix you up when you bleed
Love your obvious flaws
But I am not very strong
I always tend to hold on
A mental coup de'tat

You've been in my dreams
All this time and it seems
I still miss you
I only liked you because
You were so broken

Drowning out at the sea
Lost all desire to breathe
In this dream you're a blur
I'm not good at surviving
But near you I'm thriving
I miss where we were

Seven syllable Phrases
How long 'til your mind erases
All that you were
Drugs and discarded youth
Warmth kept here as proof
That I miss you

5 months to think
Half a page of ink
I still miss you
I only liked you because
You were so broken
