Steer

For the first time in a long time
I’m excited to see where it goes
it ain’t here
Unable to steer

Sometimes love just disappears
even before it develops
I wish you were here
do you feel me, can you hear?

Waiting game

I don’t know you
but I want your arms around me
before it’s too late
don’t let me wait

ready behind my sniper rifle
your weapon of choice is a shotgun
you’ve got many choices, I might have none

Field of mines

It has disappeared
before it came back
gave value to the bad times
enjoying a walk through a field of armed mines

Wounds need to reopen to heal properly
hiding underneath your skin
they’ll never disappear
wonder with your mind, see and hear

Shovel

Let me down slowly
else I’ll let go forever
and forget you
you wouldn’t want that
my mind yours even if it goes mad

I’ll enjoy missing you
as much as I’ll loathe it
the hole you’ll leave behind
cannot be occupied
until shovel in the ground is applied

Reeling

It used to come to me
that mixed feeling of despise and excitement
now it’s gone
I guess I’m okay; done

I do miss it though
weirdly enough
not you, just the feeling
No more reeling

Wall

It’s so satisfying to hit the wall
As hard as you can
Feel the pain
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain

Author’s note:

‘Wall’ is about being in a self-destructive mood where everything feels pointless. You know nothing good can come out of punching a wall, but at the same time you’re so down that you don’t see what bad it could cause to get your emotions out.
