Hillsborough NC    2000 -    
I would pour my soul into this if I had one anymore
I would pour my soul into this if I had one anymore

You were a statement,
a brick wall,
covered in small pieces of graffiti,
lost in a noisy city.
Barely noticed.

So you changed.
You tore yourself down,
giving away pieces
to anyone who would take them
destroying the subtle art.

I had to leave,
unable to stand the gravel
of you at my feet,
like a part of me
was in that rubble.

They all noticed you then
a small glimpse from the corner
of their eyes,
no one pays attention
to a neon jumble.

When I came back
you had lost all but three
spray painted pieces,
no matter how much I tried
I couldn't recreate you

Nothing will live
in the broken space
you once occupied completely,
so I walked away for good
You are not salvageable.

Please don't cry for my life
Your tears won't heal scars
And they'd be wasted anyways
You can't cry away the years
Can't take away the nightmares
Besides I've grown fond of them
Like friends from past lives
Whispering memories in my ear
Sighing lies of I love you and
It's not your fault.
So keep your tears locked behind your eyes
Keep your pity to yourself
There's nothing that could save my life

Roses are red
Violets are blue
There goes my heart
Don't know what to do
Today's almost done
Tomorrow is new
And so I'll just sit here
Thinking of you

I do it to hurt you
As much as I hate to admit
Sleeping in his arms
Is just so you notice I'm there
So maybe he'll say something
And you'll remember
What that was like before.
I can promise its different now,
It dosen't twist my stomach
Into the same knots as you did
And I still feel human afterwards
But maybe it's less fun this way
And maybe that doesn't matter
Because it's all for you.

#love   #heartbreak   #please   #help   #you   #me  

And maybe it's not my place to say it
But she's no good for you at all
I can see the bags under your eyes
And hear the way your voice cracks
You don't have to be with me
But I wish you could be truly happy
Instead of pushing yourself into
Something that's so bad for you.

When I’m around you
It isn’t like butterflies
But a whole flock of birds
Rustling in my stomach
And there’s no great way
To tell you this anymore
No tactful options left
Only fluttering hope
You’ll realize I love you
Before it’s too late
Help me please because now
The birds are beating their wings
Against my flesh, trying to get free
And burst out of me
Sick of the shadows that
These feelings bring and I
Have to swallow so you
Don’t see how much it would mean
If you’d just smile
And take my hand
Like the world could revolve
Around something other
Than your goddamn book
Or that stupid show
Pay attention for five seconds
And you just might notice
The love in my eyes
That I’m getting sick of
Wasting on you again and again
And that awful habit
Of flirtation without thought
For how it affects anyone else
So  I try to seem like
I don’t really care at all
When my feelings are being torn apart
But, you know what, I’m done
Clawing at my stomach
To let the birds free
So you might notice them
