Camouflage by Nora

Hey babe,

Listen before you Hi me back.

Listen carefully.

And shut up.

SHUT THE FUCK UP and listen.


Let me start with a question.

Do you really think this is going to work?

Aaaa I said Shut. Up.

Honestly I don’t care what you think.

Because you think you know everything but sorry buddy you do not.

You said you and I wont survive a day in this world, you said you know so but we have been proving you wrong for 278 days.

You said I would leave you and you would be the victim, you said it like you know which hand you were going to cuff first but I never left not for one nanosecond.

You said you will not leave, you will always be mine, and you will never let go of me you said it with confidence and this time I know that you mean it.


But you seem to know this one thing and you make sure I do too.

You know it so well you mastered it.

Oh you don’t know what it is? It is camouflage.

When we are out of our cave we turn into a Chameleon.

Do this weird kind of camouflage.

We turn into warriors instead of lovers.

And we pretend like we are someone other than who we are.

Ugh, I hate camouflage.

I hate how I can’t just hold your hand.

I hate how I can’t introduce you as more than just a friend.

I hate how when all I want to do is simply lay in your arms I can’t.

I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.


And baby before you start criticizing my attitude and start ranting about it listen to me.

Haven’t you ever noticed that even when you criticize what I do, and what I say I almost never complain about you?

I love you therefore I accept you.

When I sing along to our song I mean it when that part comes about your imperfections.

I might be the reason why you burst into tears nowadays, but I am the reason why you smile again.

I might be the reason why you have to toughen up and be the man, but I am the reason you can feel like a child again.

I might be the reason why you lost stuff, but I am yours now.

You know how I know that this is all true?

Because I can name all your flaws and yet I find you flawless.


Oh god,

All I want to do now is get up.

I want to get up and rush to you wherever you are.

Hold your hand tight and run

RUN as fast as I can

RUN as far as my legs can carry us

RUN away from everyone here, from everything

RUN from all those who wouldn’t respect us, who wouldn’t accept us, from those who would simply hurt us

RUN as far as we can cause fuck them.

FUCK them. Each and every one of them.

And then I will scream out loud.


I will scream your name and say what I couldn’t plead because of them. I will plead your love. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU.

Your body will be my only ride.

And I would grind, and grind, and grind.

But for now you can just hide.
