Can you breathe life into these

Dying lungs , to make me 

Remember what it feels

Like to live again? 

Would you shine an ember

Into this dark soul 

So she remembers what

Warmth feels like?

Can you find a reason 

To peer into these lost eyes

Creating a connection

That makes her believe

That love isn’t just a fairy tale?

Would you be willing 

To take a shaky hand

And remind it to grab hold

Of some place safe? 

Could you kiss these lips 

That have kissed more 

Bottles than boys

To make her think

The mouth of a lover

Is sweeter than the 

Poison she pours down 

Her screaming throat?

Would you

If you could

Love a broken girl

On guided wings

Lost in nightmares

And daydreams?
