peto

You could

When the nightmare that follows each delicate dream 

Hit the veiled wall of whispers suppressing a scream 

It all costs so much more than you'll ever redeem 

Shadowing what was once known as life

 

When you can't seem to fit in your very own skin 

Every virtue you hold dear presents as a sin

Missing heartbeats replaced by a head on full spin 

Stumbling through an excuse for a life 

 

Dipped in trusts burning acid a granted request 

No more love comes this way nothings left to invest 

Thin air acts as the canvas that captures your best 

Cataloguing each struggle through life

 

You could come good 

Then we would soar

Above all that we want and more 

You could come good 

Then we would fly

The twinkle straight back to your eye

You could come good 

Then we would breach 

All we are told is out of reach 

You could come good 

Then we would fight 

The constant darkness of each night 

You could come good 

Then we would feel 

Like we had both found something real

You could come good 

Then we would dance 

The first steps of a new romance 

 

You could come good 

Then we would view

How good you came to make me too

    A poem that speaks volumes.

    Your left pondering with hope and dreams.

    To bring out the best in each other in unconditional love, through the bad, both become good in the shiny ending.

        That good in others can make us good to so that we can then share it even more.
