I never wanted something safe
I wanted something of a storm
With raging feelings and hands that can’t keep off each other
I never wanted quiet nights talking about our favorite movies
I wanted spontaneous visits and our bodies intertwined.
I didn’t want somber apologies
I wanted you to make sure I treated you right
I wanted you to fight for me,
I never wanted you to leave me behind
I needed something that made my insides combust with what felt like a universe exploding in me
Suddenly, every song was about you.
I don’t fear monsters in the night, I fear humanity.
And how odd it is
to be haunted by someone
that is still alive.
You don’t realize how alone you are until you’re staying up every night thinking about things you should never think of and you cant tell anybody because you have nobody to tell.

do you ever use music as a way to measure time
