STAY (a Collection of Words About Love)

‘Stay’ is a collection of a bunch of pieces I’ve written over the last couple of years, all of which are about love. Love for a boy, love for a best friend, love for life, the loss of a loved one, anything love. This is as sappy I’ll probably ever get.

 

The Boy (1)

You can call me baby, and I will call you daddy.

We won’t be lovers til the end, but honey you’ll do, for a night or two.

And, I’ll say I want you, but you bare no reminder.

To the boy I used to know.

 

Words About Love

No, I don’t want to talk about it, there are better things to do than talk about love.

And, I don’t want to think about it. These thoughts keep coming, but I just keep on running.

 

Why We Are

I’ve been thinking about her lately. I always think about her, but now it’s different.

I guess I’ve been thinking more about us, or whatever that means.

Us. Me and her. She and I. Who we are apart and together and everything in between.

Why we are the way we are. Why she is the way she is, and why I am the same.

How the lives of two people, two people who are almost complete opposites have come together like this.

An almost perfect fit.

There is something inside of her mind. Something that shouldn’t be there, but it is. She knows what it is, and she wants to survive.

There is something missing from mine, leaving me meaningless and hollow inside.

Sometimes it’s a struggle to make it through the night, but I have meaning when she’s on my mind.

 

The Hill

And we were there, up on that hill, hand in hand, staring down at the darkness.

The city was nothing, just a sea of lights in the distance.

The people around us were slowly fading, their voices were nothing but incomprehensible whispers.

It was getting late, and your mind was leaving, and my heart was bleeding, and the lights in the distance were slowly disappearing.

But, for a moment, it was only us.

Hand in hand, staring down at the darkness, and there was nothing else in the world that mattered.

And I wished that we could have stayed forever, up on that hill, hand in hand.

And I wished that we could have stayed forever, but we had to let go.

 

My Mind Was Running

So I sat, alone in the coffee shop, the one down that alley flooded with graffiti.

That’s where it hit me.

Sunglasses still on, and my head falling forward. Outweighed by my thoughts, and the bags under my eyes.

My mind was running, and the room was spinning.

It was all because of you. It was all because of it.
Then that song came on.
“You were my best friend, and then you died, and how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?
Oh, how will I survive?”

Just like in the song “you were drifting away. I was sad, and the ocean dripped away.”

That’s what I was thinking.

When you’re gone, who will tell me it’ll all be okay? Because your mind has overflown, and that man is gonna take it all away.

And, I kept thinking.

That when you’re gone, there will be no one to say it’s okay. Your mind will have no thoughts, and your mouth won’t have any words left to say.

But I just want you to fucking stay.

 

 

If These Walls Could Talk

If these walls could talk, I’d hope that they would ask me to stay.
If these walls could talk, I’d hope they’d forgive me, like I forgive them, and tell me it will all be okay.

If these walls could talk, I’d hope they’d help me make it through the night, and remind me that tomorrow will be a brand new day.
If these walls could talk, I’d hope they’d tell me every word I ever wanted you to say.

But these walls are just walls, and I have to remind myself to stop holding on to yesterday.

 

The Boy (2)

You told me that you loved me, and you told me you cared. You told me not to leave, but boy, I’m scared.

You told me it would change, that we’d be okay. But you were no longer, and I am no longer.

The boy I used to know.

 

The Moon

You’re the moon in the morning.
You’re the sun after dark.
Thought you said you were leaving,
but you haven’t gone far.

I’m alone, but then there you are.
Around each corner you hide.

Think I’ve lost you.
I’m running scared.
But, I’ve gone nowhere.

I sleep alone in this bed tonight.
But when I wake, you’re here.

I can’t shake you. I can’t shake this feeling.
I can’t shake you. We just go on repeating.

I can’t shake you. I just can’t shake this feeling.
I can’t shake you. This story is never ending.

I can’t shake you. I can’t shake this feeling.
I can’t shake you. We just go on repeating.

We just go on repeating.

We just go on repeating.

We just go on repeating.

We just go on repeating.

We just go on.

You’re the moon in the morning.
You’re the sun after dark.
So glad that you’re still here, without you I’d fall apart.
