"Teenagers only have to focus on themselves - its not until we get older that we realize that other people exist."- Jennifer Lawrence

Awkward silence has never bothered me

In fact it’s worse when you speak

Every other word seems to somehow make me wanna cry.

I’ve never had sympathy for the lost

And today isn’t a new day for us


So listen this morning

To how fast you make my heart beat when you’re in the room

And how slowly you make me blink

When my brain can’t process any move and you make.


Yesterday I took my shot

You notice tomorrow

And I’ll think about it forever

That when I’m with you

I don’t breathe


But I say my everything.

And I throw away your favorite bottle of whiskey.
