It’s never long enough
It can never be long enough
Since the last time these weird beats
Came for a visit
Can they leave me alone for a moment
Just abandon me in cold, frozen
I want to try on my own, to breathe
But they got into my skin, beneath

These weird beats.
with my heart, with my mind
Stop glaring my eyes to blind

And so here I am

arguing to their excuses.
fighting, then failing with bruises
Because I am never a winner
for your eyes that shimmer
the morning glare of summer
and I am a longing lover
Well, I guess we both know of that pretty well by now.
