roses and guns

i’d swallow oceans just to make sure

i stay asleep the nights that are to come

my eyelids are heavy, they beg me to close them

but the stars caught my attention once again

and the moon shines brightly like never before

yet it is dark, too dark to see

silence fills the room and i have to sing the song myself

for there is no one out there

to sing it for me
