‘Happenstance’ happens and people happen to happen upon one another
I woke up with a start
sweat and heavy breathing
missing half of my heart
I’ve lost my meaning
she doesn’t feel comfortable in her own skin
so she slips into the facade of another
acting as she saw the cool kids act
speaking as she saw the cool kids act
fake it till you make it
only she never did
Cutting the strings
one by one
to detach myself
I almost lost him.
Between hidden emotions and loaded words.
Deciphering the mess of what we had become, what we felt, and what we wanted.
Like finding life again, beneath an avalanche –
we had to dig ourselves out again
before we could take a breath.
Close your eyes.
Open you heart.
Constant pressure to be more.
Constant pressure to be better than before.
