Tonight

Tonight

A Poem by boltsbutterfly

It’s always so cold in here

I’m always plagued with fear

I’m not right

It’s alright


With every darkened day

I feel myself slipping away

I fight

Not alright


And with every kiss

I fake for this

My heart

Won’t heal


And baby you’ll never do

I can’t make it stick with you

I can’t lay my head on you

You can’t heal these wounds

It’s not right, so tonight…


Tonight I’m saying true

All that I mean to you

I can’t possibly make it true

I am not that girl for you


I’m this broken bird

My chirp is a caw

So absurd

It’s not right!

It’s my life

My fight

Tonight


Tears like rain

Crashing on these blotches of pain

I don’t know what to do

Feeling too numb to move


I worshiped you

What a fool's bitter excuse

It’s not me

It’s not me

I never was one to play these games

But I've kept you on this jagged chain

While my hearts been weak and suffocating

I’m much to broken for the waking


ohhhh. ohhhhhhhohohoho.


why! why! why! why!



Tonight I’m saying true

it’s what I got to do

with all that I mean to you

I can’t possibly make it true

it’s not right! Can’t fight!


Take these broken wings of mine

I sing about them all the time

There scorched and charred from all these rhymes

I can’t...even...make...you...mine

I won't let myself!


These cloudy days

This sing song rain

This agony

is killing me

my heart's in my dreams

It’s not settling

I can’t make it right with you next...to...me


And every time I dream

You and I are shining

Like Comets

Exploding (across the vast expanse of sky)

But this is not the case

I’m tired

I’m stuck at second base

And I cannot simply stay in place

My love needs to….move, move, mooveee.



Tonight my love

Im singing of the what could of

it’s true, it’s true


with all that I mean to you

I can’t possibly make it true

it’s my right, to take flight


So with these tear soaked pages

And these partial words

I’ll travel off

embrace this world

This chance of mine

To love myself

Before I love someone else.


Tonight I’m saying true

it’s what I got to do

with all that I mean to you

I can’t possibly make it true

it’s not right

tonight, tonight...
