Dear Brande

How I’ll miss you

You’ll never know

She was ambitious

And she was #goals

Prayers of rest and peace

For such a beautiful soul

We’ll never know

When it’s our time to go

In my mind you’ll

always be immortal

Sigh of relief

mixed with a little bit of


Take a good girl

And try to turn her

into a savage

I know what I want

And I know that I

Could never have it

Heart’s still racing

Pounding by the second

And time’s a wasting

Been here all my life

And I’m tired of waiting

For the prefect guy

To come and save me

I’m drowning in this tide

Timeless as a rose
The story of you and I
It was as if time
itself had froze
The moment
you caught my eye
Oh cliché I know
But time and space
Don’t lie
You’ve been running
through my mind
I’ve been trying to
jog your memory
Chasing that silver lining
Hoping that you’d
remember me

Red lights glare
Enter if you dare
The daydreamers stare
Empty as the air
Manic horns blare
Piercing the silent night
Are we almost there
I may be wrong
But I think you’re right
I’m feeling every care
That I’ve ever cared
Building up inside
Spilling through my eyes
Speak easy
but speak these lies
Are you ok
Yes I’m alright

They said beware of the burnout
But I like the flame
It keeps me warm when it’s cold out
I guess that makes me pro pain
And I feel that fire
It’s running through me
Racing through my vein
And if all we are is what we will be
Come quickly with the rain

Ignorance was bliss

If only for an hour

Shame on me

Wanting to be you

So thirsty for your power

With everything to lose

I bit into the fruit

My evil heart exposed

Now everything goes

In a broken world

I’m a queen deposed

A broken girl

No sugar coats

Let them freeze

It’s the coldest winter ever

And this could be the end of me

Though it’s feeling like forever

I’m burning bridges endlessly

to keep you warm


I’m in too deep

Let me breathe

There’s no surviving

in this weather

I play the martyr incessantly

Gifting you like it’s December
