Tonight, if you’re alone,
Turn your eyes to the darkness and know
There is no nothingness – amidst the abyss I exist somewhere too.
If your bones are built with stone tonight
And the light from the moon refuses to grace you
Know that I too have felt heavy
With all the things I failed to be, the forgotten details, the sum of my missteps
The not yets and too lates.
If your mistakes have made you older
Than you’d thought you’d be tonight
Know that through all this chilling air, in spite of it all,
I’ve left my light on for you.
If, tonight, you feel you’re falling fast
Past faces and planets and layers of skin
Know that I’ve been there too –
My skin has been blue and my hair failed to grow
But I let myself go and stomached the fall and I think you should too –
Fall into the darkness
and know that somwhere across it
I’m waiting for you.
