Lately I forget to forget that you don't exist.
I'm also growing comfortable with never being comfortable.
Broken down, winded. Tell me there's more to nights like these
than thinking through your symmetry.
For the next few weeks this lack of sleep is all I'll keep close to me.
I've struggled with nineteen, and the memories in these readings
are all I'll need to keep me at peace.
So pick out the flaws that I already see.
There you go, right on time, seeing straight through me.
But if it's not the last time, when will be the next time?
It's so cold in here. It's so quiet.
Where are you to warm me now?
You told me over and over and over and over,
over and over again, that you'd stay.
Over and over, on and on, over and over, and on and on.
