Lex Barrie


The sun sets against your hair,

And I become breathless with the way it touches you slowly,

wishing it was me.

The moon phases against your heart,

the same way you fall in and out of love with him.

I know I could do so much better.

I would never give you the chance to follow your unhappiness into the empty space beyond.

Just so you could rise again in the night, with no hope in sight.

The stars shine against your striking blue eyes,

calling out your name,

trying to drown out my whispers of forever after.

There are just times when I give in to the competition, and others,

where I know I will never give you up.
