I don't want to say

Thu, 03/31/2016 - 11:02 -- jaybeak

I don't want to say you're all I need.
That I can't live without you. 

That when we fall asleep
I match my inhale to yours.

I want to say that I exist on my own.
That I can stand
without your arms around me.

Because I know that one day
only half of
will be left.

And I want to believe that it will be ok.

My family
