I desperately wanted the leaves to change. I felt that everything in my life was constantly the same, so much so that I was content to let the foliage die just so I could start over.

We were broken. We were lost. But for now, We are tangled, Into one. All those things, Will be true, tomorrow. But for now, Look into my eyes, And belong.
I was stuck, In a slow motion car crash, With the screech of the tires And the glass of the windows, Piercing into every inch, Of my delicate skin.

Necessity You were once the boat, That kept my head above water, And even amidst the sinking, I would not abandon ship.

Forbidden Falling for your thoughts, Like a torrential downpour. As your heart sealed shut, I only craved us more. Distance was my ally, But timing was my foe.
