Awesome! That's what I meant when I said every line is a little masterpiece to itself...or whatever it was I said...brilliant! :D

soul mates

i much prefer the version of my life where i'm not screwing up.
remember those days?
the red letter days?
did we have them?
ever?
really?


hm.


i'm not as sad as i'll remember,
but i'm not remembering now.
i can't see what's behind me if i'm looking to the future.
someone's running me off the road.
i'm too afraid to look behind me.


things are always better
when we think they are always worse.
and not a day goes by where time doesn't stand still.
how long ago was it when we weren't now? 1 comment


hm.


it's you again
the fault and the fracture
the adoration of guilt
the blame of manicured nails
across pavement filled with broken glass 1 comment


a time when i cared was a time i don't regret
if only i knew enough of my past to regret


hm.


losing track of optimism
lack of pride and healthy habits


today i will sleep
and i'll wake with a smile
one that you can't see
but i know you can feel
don't judge a melancholy by its cover
i love you all the same.
