peace

(no subject)

there was a song a song you said you would sing
and all the while i waited to see
your life unfolding like a balloon
and exploding like something else.

i watched your eyes change throughout the years
and i know your smile and when you are scared
some nights you are happy and some you are gone
and your song
and your song
and your song carries on

your life unfolding like the well worn book
that you gave me one morning as you said keep this safe.
now your little book dreams of bigger days
as it waits for you to find it again.

for you the world was an uninteresting toy
and for me your love was an inescapbable love
we would kiss all day long but i never could
keep you safe.
