Go on and try to tear me down. I will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper

Love is louder than the pressure to be perfect

Tired eyes: Im still wide awake
Though far from you, I am fine.
Still dreaming, and waiting
but I don’t admit.
I’m dreaming of singing,
From before a dark eclipse.
Some porcelain mask shatters in the night
and in the morning, another will arise
But deep in these tired eyes
She’s still wide awake.
