I was born nervous, but the universe is telling me something different.
And I'm talking to myself far too much, and I think I'm starting, to lose its trust.
We have so much in common, it's easy to be honest.
But just as easy to be afraid, it's all just give and take.
There are voids in everything.
Between the moon and stars and my heart and me.
But light reaches everything eventually.
And mine brings its warmth with blue eyes and crooked feet.
I've always been afraid of everything, but one soft smile convinced me to breathe.
And from here I doubt that there's a better view, and if I never left it would be too soon.
Somedays I can feel the emptiness and the weight it brings falling off my chest.
I just hope my fingers are strong enough, to hold on to what I've become.
I am content, I am happy. I'll be damned before I forget that again.
