Somewhere behind these blue eyes

Deep within what I protect, with ferocity

Below the standards I set for me, and everyone else

Lies shattered moments I cannot take back

Moments I regret with a passion I cannot even begin to describe.

My breath today was fierce

My temperament was the most sane I’ve been

Because why get too wild, really

When there isn’t anyone you love around

To pick you up when you fall down?

 

A fraction of a second

I decided to turn around

Make a left at the next corner

Instead of battling through this

Fight I have going on inside of me.

 

When everyone proves something right

How are you to know when the one person

That could prove them all wrong comes along?

 

Somewhere behind these blue eyes

Deep within what I protect, with ferocity

Below the standards I set for me, and everyone else

Lies shattered moments I cannot take back.

My breath today was harsh, at best

My temperament was cool, demanding.

 

What good are you

If you don’t have what it takes

To handle

What you claim you want?
