Miss the fireworks just to save the burn. Sparks catch so quickly when you're the only thing to breath.

In that moment that you realized you are more alone than you bargained for.
I can't trust myself with my own eyes, they whisper of the dreams of setting suns shown in pixels and the sin of a friendly smile.
But nightmares are in season and I can't burst my burning lungs waiting for…
