Don't Ever Die

from by Joy Ike


Thought if I wanted, thought if I wanted to leave
Kept these words in my mouth, stood up and walked out
No one would see

Slipped through the door’s crack, never to come back
You followed me
Just like a shadow, subtle but faithful
Something so sweet

And you said, “Don’t ever die. You don’t fit in, but neither do I.
Don’t you pretend that nobody cares. This is me here.
You don’t fit in but neither do I. That brings me joy and life.
Joy and life”
