Let Me Bleed

un-sleep yourself; if you wake, don't leave
if you walk away, look back on me
don't look for xan in the cloud
the bed-springs are broken, they dangle
like your arms waitin for all the things
you were meant to do; a show or a song,
some drone to fall to.
I know you're scared, wonderin if anyone cared
if you pulled through, if anyone's cryin for you.
you're so young, just a lil strung
a lil dumb, lil numb at the bottom—
come on wake up gothboi,
got a bottle of sun waitin for you.
feels like you're leavin now,
your face fades like a season—
I sift through your photos looking for a boy,
a mood, a reason...
my heart's a lil broken, my pain goes
unspoken; your beautiful, awful things
in the mixtape of my mind,
Peep I’m gonna keep you there,
you're the best thing you left behind.

RIP Gustav Ahr (aka Lil Peep)
