With You Without Me

You are amazing and you are
Not alone
You are aiming for a place
Far from home
And we know that we will never see
Certain places again
Certain faces again

Live, forever
You know I’ll be
Waiting, praying
Longing to see
To see you be all that you can
With you without me

Give it up, I cannot go
I can’t be
I can’t be ever what I need
Because I don’t know, no
I don’t know
I don’t know what I need
To be
To be with you

Live, forever
Knowing I’ll be
Lost at sea
Longing to be all that I can
With you without me

And we will see the end
Of things
With you without me

As They Left Me For Dead

The beach
The beach’s sand in my lungs
and on my tongue
My wrist
My wrists are bound and tied
Tied behind my back

As my vision seeps back in, it seems up is somewhere to the left
And from this awkward angle, I can see heels slinking away
They’ve left me sinking in the sand
What a pit of lies I did believe

The blood
The blood-stained teeth behind my lips
as I rise to my feet
The bruise
The bruises on my cheeks
But after doing this deed
Well, you look worse than me

-Zach
