come closer

can you see where the wind changes

run your taste over my tongue


stay alive and I promise something will happen

better than the tomorrow you have wished for us

clearer than this sky

even as I could follow it to clouds


come closer

can’t you see we are adrenaline

can’t you love even the days

our balance seems too thin


maybe we need to find a different ground

to hold us up

or some sort of magic to keep us standing


we are threads holding tight to your hands

connect us and you will see

how this can be everything

when we are outside in winter and

it is not as cold with you here


we are strings holding on to your heart

and when the world collapses we will
