Balloons Will Pop, Guns Will Fire

benwritesstuff:

I think about the little things and wonder if you do.
The moon was bright and yellow tonight,
It might be like that for you?
You’ll never notice things like that, 
It’s the little things you miss.
You’re always focussed on something else.
Do you even remember our first kiss?

Balloons will pop and guns will fire,
I’ve lost my love, I’ve lost my desire.
Distance is a killer, you don’t hear it coming.
I ran out of breath, I gave up on running.

Is the sun still up over there?
I ask more pointless questions.
It’s like I’m trying to breathe life,
Into something that’s flatlining. 
‘I don’t care’ leaves your mouth.
I’m left here always wondering.
Your attention is focussed else where.
Can you feel the end approaching?

Balloons will pop and guns will fire,
I’ve lost my love, I’ve lost my desire.
Distance is a killer, you don’t hear it coming.
I ran out of breath, I gave up on running.

The fight to love you, has always been tough.
I’ve got to stand strong, 
Enough is enough.
You mutter those words, 
I’ve heard them all before.
Go like the rest, walk out the door.

Balloons will pop and guns will fire,
I’ve lost my love, I’ve lost my desire.
Distance is a killer, you don’t hear it coming.
I ran out of breath, I gave up on running.

Now you’re gone… I’m at the end.
I wrote you a letter, I tried to make amends. 
The page was blank and ink ran dry.
There’s nothing left, I cannot try.
It seems so silly, it seems so strange.
To think about what ‘if’s’, to see it all change.

I lay here in silence…
And I watch us die here in silence.

Balloons will pop and guns will fire,
And guns will fire,
And guns will fire,
And guns will fire,

(bang)

Moments

benwritesstuff:

There’s only so many times you can hear about seizing the moment.
There’s only so many positive things you can hear about living in the moment.
Because by all means, run to the one you care about and tell them.
Drive to their house in the middle of the night,
Climb their fence and knock on their window.
When they open the door, kiss them.
Tell them how you’re feeling, what you’re thinking.
Tell them life is short and they are who you want.
Do that, because life is so short and things can change so quickly.
But what happens when you know they don’t feel the same?
Are you still meant to seize that moment?
Drive to their house?
Are you?


If 5 hours of chatting with you seems like 5 minutes, I can only think that a life together would be like the perfect day.


i think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anybody else to feel like that

I feel like if you’re having a conversation with a girl and whatever you’re saying prompts you to say “hey I love my girlfriend very much” then you need to like rethink the words you are speaking your conversation should not require confirmation that you’re dedicated to your significant other
