duct tape on my mouth
the lace curtain is drawn
and we might lose everything we ever had
today the plaster will keep me from crying
did they get lost while you were away
when you couldnt find your way
couldnt be around
tell them why you like the taste of poison better
than love in a saucer
puddle blue eyes keep brimming over
wrinkled skin reaching out
to hold the little girl
shes gone
in dark eyeshadow arms
heels with teeth
cards written in crayon for a birthday
that will never come
white walls will sing you to sleep
and she used to keep you safe
grown up doesnt mean
grown strong
losing us all
woman who guarded
so weak frail lovely her strength was your soul
and shes drowning with the icebergs
the death of a glacier in her irises
you never know love in anothers arms
like the person who would lay down
train track rumble
i never forgot
forgive me
selfish things
selfish ink
brutal moments of absence
i look in you now and see me
the way i should be
is there still time to take that dream
run to the edge of the earth with it
hold it protect it
create it
love me still
sing for me while im sick
bringing me back from the brink
mending my wounds
and shes still crying
what is love if it cant save us both
save us right now
in this vast ocean of misgiving and madness
hold tight
float together
be who you were always supposed to be
each others savior
