i don't deserve you.
i don't even deserve to have met you.
never did,
never will.
i won't forget you, i promise,
and this is clear to my heart.
content i may never be,
if so, content i shall never see.
his face brings shine upon your eyes.
i am powerless compared to him
so painful, i run, and to run away from it all,
i choose to sleep.
our days will just pass by,
probably without a word said to one another.
but remember that i am here,
waiting, just waiting for me to just
fade away
the road ahead, it leads to nowhere,
a place that i once called home.
it was you who dragged me out,
yet once again i creep within it.
i guess this is goodbye,
or simply a quirky "hello",
but you are my north star,
the one that i look forward to.
day by day,
night by night
month by month,
until the time i am
laid to rest.
as my wake, it comes,
this i ask to you:
mourn not for me,
as i go six feet low,
and keep my word,
that it was not your fault.
