The notches on the wall,

Are in my skin.

I’ve carved your name,

On my heart.

There’s no going back,

One you’ve claimed something

Made it yours

Tamed it.

I built your cage out of regrets

Now I’ll build my own out of sorrow.

We can’t be in the same space


We’re like two magnets trying to touch

But never reaching

The closer we come

The more the air hisses

Like the energy in our bodies

Can’t be contained.

Pretty soon

If we’re not careful

We’ll destroy the world.

And we’ll burn like flames

Never dimming

Just two shooting stars

Incinerating everything

We touch.


The End
