you have your eyes shut

i would brighten the sun to keep you warm,

but you just put on a jacket.

 

i would wipe your tears to make sure you can see,

but you use your sleeve.

 

i would search for you in a crowded room,

but youve locked yourself in another.

 

i would kiss what hurts and heal your wounds,

but youve already taken the medication.

 

i

would

steal you

a star

so that

you

could 

see

something

beautiful,

but you

have

your

eyes

closed.

yknow?
