“flags in your eyes”

to witness a loss of betrayal
push up against the freezing colors
a millions lights inside your head
coming too close to the stars
whisper to the back of sleep
speaking endlessly
slipping into another world
I hear them calling
take my aim so far away
noises wake us from slumber
lay down these dreams
hands that hurt to familiarize
take me into paradise
circle the injection coming too close to forgetting

a numbness aching like a gift
press it all too late
running through the wind
I hear you call out like a heat that intensifies through a star
turning back time to find you there
ice breaking at my skin from time to time
I catch you from beyond flying all the flags into your eyes
when you broke into paradise
shout against the memories shaking me down
follow the freedom marching on her back
confusion breaking through my heart
translating every emotion driving me home
color the paper dolls
lock this gift away
don’t consume it all
I think I’m falling too deep
lock my heart away with a key
keep changing past perfection
