Our Something Between

                                                                                                                                          .

It’s coming on tonight.

Let’s let it take us down.

No reason we should fight.

No expectation,

let’s let it roll over us, now.

                                                                                                                                          .

We let our hearts starve

while we worked our lives away.

Never gave a moment

to think why we felt this way.

Divided by every knife

and burned in a structure fire.

                                                                                                                                          .

Our something between us,

leaves us

cold and empty

while we’re

out here,

on the wire.

                                                                                                                                          .

Lost in space,

tossed away,

washed further from the shore.

I call your name

and I can barely hear you

calling me through the storm.

We gave our lives away

to each other,

before this constant war.

                                                                                                                                          .

Struggling through this

animosity,

just to hold you once again.

Tears cut through the laughter,

knowing we did not give in.

Reality is a monster

and possibility its twin.

                                                                                                                                          .

Holding on together,

through the end of all of this.

Let’s give in

to each other

and to the world resist.

We might survive together,

alone we don’t exist.

                                                                                                                                          .

                                                                                                                                          .
