SOMETIMES I'M ALONE AT NIGHT & I AM HIT BY THE IMMENSITY OF THE WORLD & EVERY BEAUTIFUL THING THAT I WILL BE TOO BUSY TO WITNESS & ONE DAY I WILL DRIVE OUT INTO A FIELD & SCREAM & TEAR MY HEART OUT TO THE NIGHT BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT MAKES ME BLEED. 

BUT WE WILL NEVER WATCH ALL THE SUNSETS
                                                                ALL THE SUNRISES
& WE WILL NEVER READ ALL THE BOOKS
                                                                     ALL THE POEMS
&WE WILL NEVER HEAR ALL THE SONGS
                                                                ALL THE SILENCES
& WE WILL NEVER SMELL ALL THE FLOWERS
                                                                     ALL THE FEARS
&WE WILL NEVER TASTE ALL THE FRUITS
                                                                         ALL THE LIPS
& WE WILL NEVER DRINK ALL THE WHISKEYS
                                                                  ALL THE DREAMS
& WE WILL NEVER HOLD ALL THE HANDS
                                                                   ALL THE LOVERS
& WE WILL NEVER KISS ALL THE SKINS
                                                                     ALL THE SCARS
& WE WILL NEVER KEEP ALL THE MEMORIES
                                                               ALL THE PROMISES
& WE WILL NEVER KNOW ALL THE LIES
                                                                   ALL THE TRUTHS
& WE WILL NEVER LOVE ALL THE PEOPLE
                                                                          THE PEOPLE
                                                                          THE PEOPLE
                                                     THE GODDAMN FUCKING
                                                                                 PEOPLE
