Dying Brings Lies

Wed, 09/05/2018 - 19:32 -- Bobby.

Hello? Hello?

If you must go

Tell me where

I'll send you letters

 "please don't be scared"

How can I not be scared if you leave me alone

This isn't a nightmare I can just wake up from

You would throw a pillow at me

"go back to sleep"

Now everyone is crying

"she was good in life"

"taken so young"

The one I hate the most

Her heart was too pure to live in this world

If you would take a second

You could find

A girl that was damned

Broken and cut up

But she was mine

Not yours

My burner to end the wars I couldn't

And she's gone away
