Climb

I need to pull myself back together
And get things right this time.
The burning leaves outside my home
Tear me apart
Cause I’m alone.

Insecurity is my dying fate,
I’m lost in this emotional state.
My lungs cry for you
As they shatter in my chest.
They just can’t take this solitude
This separation of time.

The world is right above me
But I can’t make the climb.

I’m below every universe
And every single hope.
I’m stuck in this unfaithful dream
Not knowing where to go.

Stars are falling all around me,
Making their frightful leap.
I wish I could fall like they do,
I wish I could make my heart skip.

But I’m fixed in time
And in this state.
I’m fixed like flowers,
Like a cyclical mate.

I should be able to find
The reason for this break,
But my mind is insanity
And it takes no prisoners.

I wander and I lose.
I stumble and I shatter.
If only
I could climb this ladder.
