It's such a cold night,
Your skin is in sight,
Falling out of bars, hoping never to fall in love, again,
You find your comfort in the company of strange men

So you climb back in through your window, into your bedroom, into your bed
And you hope that nobody noticed, nobody ever notices

Jennifer, you put it on display.
Jennifer, what have you got to say, for yourself?

It's such a cold night,
Your skin is out of sight,
Scared to walk the road, that you walked so far down, before,
You've lost your comfort in the panic of the four walls

So you fall back into your pillow, hands on your stomach, hands on your head
And you hope that nobody noticed, but everybody notices

Jennifer, you put it on display.
Jennifer, what have you got to say, for yourself?
Jennifer, he's gonna away, with it all.
Jennifer, you put it on display, it's your fault.
These are actually song lyrics but who cares?

The cruelest thing
you did to me
was the fact
that you almost fell
and did not utter a thing.


The cruelest thing
I did to you
was almost falling
and being this afraid
and not saying a word.


The cruelest thing
time did to us
was uncovering the facts
a year too late
so that feelings couldn't last.
When I look up at the sky late at night,
I see nothing but the half smiling moon,
and the little power stars
gleaming at me.
It makes me think
what life would be without darkness.
My ears were ringing, the pimple on my upper lip stinging.
The words they were saying, drowned in the harsh love they were playing.
I know how lovely you are, how kind you can be.
Oh! How I want to believe.
The large weight on my shoulders made my eyes and nose run.
Tick tock went the clock, reminding me of how wrong I was.
Internally my heart stopped for a second, a second too slow.
Her wisdom baffles me all the time, his warnings ******* me time and time again.
While rope around my neck gets tighter and tighter, the days go faster and faster.
Their advice I would take, hoping and hoping its not too late.
Almost everybody wants to be here;
I don't know if it's
the drugs or the choice in music,
but it's hard not to feel calm with your
big-voice-gotta-laugh-thing going on,
or someone else talking a mile a minute about
the best ways to **** time in the suburbs.
At least one night this week, it kind of feels like we've got it going for us.

I looked nice today
I wish you saw
But it was too late
And you were gone

Here are just fake people
Showing fake love to me
But I did come for you
Just for you, to be seen
She lay and wait by the tree
reading her exciting book.
She felt a chilly breeze
at her face as the trees shook.

Intrigued in her reading,
she read how the town was saved
and everyone was happy at the end
and new beginnings were paved.

She look at her watch
and couldn't believe the time!
It was 11:00,
and the bus was supposed to be at 9.

She was engrossed in her book,
she completely missed the bus.
Now when she will have to walk home
and her mother will make a fuss!

Sometimes I have trouble
Feeling gratitude
Appreciating all you do
But it was only until you were gone
I needed what you’ve done

I got home from work today
turned off my engine and just sat there

it was raining outside
a little cold
my knees hurt

I found myself thinking of you

thinking about how empty my car felt in this rain without you

/ / /

there is a kindness inside of you that I don't know how to explain
you carry yourself with an essence of unapology that makers itself known

gently

you don't care what people thing but you are by far the most caring

you make chaos something graceful
you ***** away labels that do nothing but confuse
you navigate the world with truth, inspiring everything that surrounds you to become its best

if you want something you, you create it
you are purest form of spirit and the epitome of resilient
and I am so grateful for you

/ / /

I have no explanation other than the one sitting right here in this car in the rain but I hope it is enough because there is more love than can fit in my heart for you

too much not to know what to do with it
another memoir type thing
