Let Me Bleed
jenakajoffer

un-sleep yourself; if you wake, don't leave
 1
if you walk away, look back on me
 2
don't look for xan in the cloud
 3
 
 
the bed-springs are broken, they dangle
 4
like your arms waitin for all the things
 5
you were meant to do; a show or a song,
 6
some drone to fall to.
 7
 
 
I know you're scared, wonderin if anyone cared
 8
if you pulled through, if anyone's cryin for you.
 9
 
 
you're so young, just a lil strung
 10
a lil dumb, lil numb at the bottom—
 11
come on wake up gothboi,
 12
got a bottle of sun waitin for you.
 13
 
 
feels like you're leavin now,
 14
your face fades like a season—
 15
I sift through your photos looking for a boy,
 16
a mood, a reason...
 17
 
 
my heart's a lil broken, my pain goes
 18
unspoken; your beautiful, awful things
 19
in the mixtape of my mind,
 20
Peep I’m gonna keep you there,
 21
you're the best thing you left behind.
 22
