Allow your heart to untie itself from the wicked webs you have been weaving

You were such a fool for going your entire life believing

That you could never be happy on your own

As if the two phrases could never form a sentence alone.

Since the word lonely left an awful taste on your lips

But it always reminded you of constant Hims

You never had time to learn your smile paired better with your lips

Before The Hims constantly caused it to bedim.

You spent too long convincing them that their hearts matched your shade

That your forgot gold can not be created from grays

Nineteen years old but eternity never felt too far away

Seasons pass and new faces flash as I beg them to stay

Winter consumes my icy skin while summer beckons me to play

Whispering that my eternities will begin any day

Left alone to freeze over in winter while lovers frolic in summer haze

Darling pick yourself up and dust off any of the remains

You are not frozen yet, it only feels that way

Eyes full of stars and a heart of gold

Remember every day you grow old

But you are only nineteen and barley grown

How were you to have known

That you could look in the mirror and relay

That it is only you staring back 

And that is more than okay.
