¨The space in between your comfort zone and your dreams is where life takes place.¨
-Helen Keller

I left it unsaid

with tears running down my cheeks

scabbed elbow bleeding red

into the light blue sheets on my bed


I fell asleep

wondering what you would think

to see the hope I keep

the slippery slope´s getting steep



and I forgot

to tell you that the sun came up

and I forgot

that you took that jump


When I heard

I was wearing a blue shirt

my vision blurred

you were my Byrd


Last July

the sky was sort of gray

you asked me why

all humans die




Two months later

You´re still alive

still don´t beleive in the Creator

not even a little bit straighter


I can´t wait

you said it like there´s a future

It´ll be great

just us, with no self-hate




The hurt´s still there

I´m sorry it´s my fault

I didn´t mean it, I swear

you know I care


We´ll get through it

hand in hand

I won´t quit-

no sh*t.
