What a strange creature you are
I don't think I've ever seen anything
That shines so bright in the dark
Your eyes are the color of a winter day
But you walk just like the middle of summer
Your hair smells like pavement after it's just rained
But it's warm like sunrise in it's color
Your smile hits me like a hurricane.
And when you laugh, it's a million times worse
The Earth yawns in a tremendous earthquake.
Destruction so beautiful it almost doesn't hurt.
So let me watch the Fourth of July fireworks
In the snowy backdrop of your blue-grey eyes
Let me bathe in your waves and tsunamis
And wash away in your riptides
Because I'm tired of being who they tell me to be
I want to trip on the urge to feel alive.
I'm tired of being okay and not great
I want to live, not just survive.
You told me that my skin was paper
And my blood was undilluted kerosene
