up up and away

the feeling of you in my hands

that 1 little piece of strand 

don’t let go, don’t let go

seeing you makes my heart glow 

I always fell deep into your eyes

you would never lie

rosy cheeks, smooth skin 

was this considered a sin?

i always check that the doors are locked

the ziplock bags are sealed so you know

our heart is too

our love is gold

no matter how old.

until one day you waved bye

letting out a deep sigh


but it just flew away,

just a mistake,

just another one,

that made my heart ache,


let it go

let it leave 

let it happen 

let it breathe 

up up and away

you’ve just wasted my whole entire day.
