I am still trying to figure out exactly what that means, But so far, I have gathered this:
It means I hold on to memories Like a frightened child Gripping their mother's hand Because I am afraid to let go Of certain things In my life.
It means when it comes to love I fall hard And I fall fast, Tripping over my own legs Landing face-first Into the ground Every single time; I wish it was something I could help But I guess God made me 5'9" for a reason.
It means that on a scale of one to ten The intensity of my emotions Are a solid 13; It’s just plain unlucky I wish there was a **** I could turn To dial them down Every once in a while.
It means that certain songs Bring me to tears Since they are double-knotted With memories of past-lovers And my nails aren't long enough To undo those knots quite yet.
It means I am fragile Like a delicate piece of china, I need to be handled with great care Lest you drop me and shatter me Into a million pieces.
Please keep all of this in mind While I open up to you About the past 5 years of my life.
