Stagnant

How can you keep it in

All of the doubts you hear

ringing loud and clear

I should be by your door

hanging on a tender hope

wailing about how bad I am

You deserve a world better

cooled down from weather

you’re tired of my sanity

getting away usually

it wasn’t a chore before

You learned me like a scared oath

I preserved your touch on me

But what would happen

When I am drowned in flames

They glow midnight blue

In a scent you hated too

Show me the scars

I gave you while you cried

I regret every step

I took with you in mind

Little blue lark

wanting a mic to cry

No one knows what you want

It was love in the air

I couldn’t breathe in
