Relapse


exhale in me
feel it deep in your skin
bury your fingers in the ground
they’re cold like my throat
my eyes leak
‘cause i can’t imagine a minute without you

i’m laying in the backyard
trying to figure out what my heart turned out to
clouds on a dark sky
trying to run away
thoughts are relapsing
thoughts are relapsing
but i can’t let them

you can’t fix everything by one hand
one warm look can’t unbreak the heart
but bite me once again
kiss my hand and make me forget
'cause this, with you is all i want now
even if thoughts are relapsing
thoughts are relapsing
but i know i can’t let them

trees are chasing me
even if they’re not moving
grass swallows me
i choke by this fresh air
i’m tangled in the ivy
getting stuck on the bridges
these bridges somewhere in my mind
i’m running even if i’m not moving
and thoughts are relapsing
thoughts are relapsing
i try not to let them

if this me is my final me?
if this us is our final us?
if us is final at all?
my insides went for so much to get here
and even if the thoughts are relapsing
even if the thoughts are relapsing
and even if i’ll let them
they’re nothing to worry about
they’re harmless and homeless
expired and backward.
and i’m not going backwards.
