we are the sum of everyone we meet

Words are not enough
Look at me
Look into me
And instil in me
The films that you’ve watched
And the books that you’ve read
Every heart you’ve broken
Every word you’ve ever said

Promises are not enough
Stay with me
Stay within me
And be there
When I talk about the poems that I love
And songs that I hate
Every time my heart was broken
Every word I’ve ever said

Your presence is not enough
Be with me
Become me
And when the world ends
The stars will collapse
All gold will turn to rust
You are all I’ll take with me
When my flesh turns to dust
