Free-falling into a void.
We came together for a reason,
A reason that I can’t avoid.

I turn and see your face,
It feels like seeing my reflection,
While we’re floating through time and space.

Every memory flies past,
Shooting by like a star in the sky.
A moment is too quick to last.

This fall can’t ever hurt us,
It never could and it never will,
It will always remain harmless.

Beneath your mask I saw light,
Though this world will try to put it out,
Promise you’ll keep it burning bright.

And when those bullets start falling,
Don’t ever look back, just shut your eyes,
We’ll let them keep on firing, 

And I see them all raining,
But they’ll only graze us, never pierce us,
They’ll pass us by, so keep firing.

I take in all the beauty,
Of all the time that’s shooting past,
It’s so pretty yet it’s blurry.

We’re one mess but it’s beautiful,
We are falling at such a fast speed,
Together we’re all colourful.

And all the colours are bright,
So many falling, like an army,
With each other we all ignite.

And though we are still diving,
Diving headlong into the future,
I’ll never know where we’re going.

But we’ll fall. Together.  

Before I go, I want to thank everyone who left me the most sweetest welcoming comments EVER! They meant so, SO much to me. Thank You!
