And then I just need a hug
Not so you can hold me together,
I'm pretty good at that myself now
Not so I can talk about it,
I was never really good at talking
But to tell you
In a shaky embrace,

that my heart's bleeding.

And it was at that moment,
Where thoughts of time & tomorrow
flickered excitedly behind closed lids
And any chance of rest was vainly sought.

Life was good.
