it's okay to let your soul be too heavy
you don't have to do anything but hold it
you do not have to smile
you do not have to summon strength for the sake of others
your only job is to breathe and be gentle to your aching heart
the sky and i woke up feeling a little too heavy this morning
so we talked,

the sky and i agreed that sometimes all you need is to turn the heaviness to little drops and let them fall
someday i will give every poem i ever wrote about you
back to you
because i will no longer need them

so i set myself on fire in the hopes of being bright enough for him to see
i let myself burn to ashes trying to keep him warm
let him freeze
