I Surrender

She wears freckles across her nose
That you can count like constellations

Her smile will light up this whole world
And her heart might just do the same

Please choose her over my selfish charm
My poisonous kisses and disheveled morning promises

The warmth of her soul will comfort you forever
My toxic allure will leave you with frostbite

She embodies the very definition of gentle
Her soft hands were made for soothing
Who can estimate the power of her embrace?

Darling, no one ever taught me gracefulness;
Destruction is my specialty, remember?

I leave behind a path of wreckage,
Baby, can’t you see that?

I can’t love you like she can.
