Highlight Reel

Sat, 02/15/2020 - 00:37 -- Aegis

The only time I remember feeling safe in the dark

was the only time I ever traveled without my dog to bark

the only person that I thought knew and still forgave

was the one around which I didn't let my true self be saved

the only moment I had the faith to act on rash decisions

was the only good my life gave without unseen incisions


and the happiest moment of my life is filled with the greatest pain

and still the rest which is coated red continues my soul to drain

the only hope I wish I had was that I'd make it through

but the greatest wish I can't admit is that I won't have to

and while my life is full of moments that stand amongst the rest

all I remember are the sharp ones, which I think define me best
