SPLINTERED NORMALITY

\

you
you’d fall
I think you’d fall in love with anyone
who - fell - in - love - with - you
(they frequently do)
so
take comfort
cruel comfort
before you start to wonder
how - you - got - locked - insiiiide - your - room
and how long will it
take
before you start to hate yourself
and go straight
into the arms of someone else
and I’ll just waiiiit
until those arms belong to me
and I’m not sayin’ that you love me
I’m not sayin’
anythiiiing
tell me
do you let them down, gently
does it only make it harder
to let the feeling linger
to drag it out a little longer
does it put your mind at ease
but you’re the one who brought him here
you’re the one that has to take him when you leave
and how long will it
take
before you start to hate yourself
and go straiiiight
to the arms of someone else
and I’ll just wait
until those arms belong to me
and I’m not saying that you love me
I’m not saying
any
thing

if I was only a little younger
slightly softer
with vastly wider eyes
then I could tell you
what I’ve been meaning to:
that our redemption
is also our demise

I’m having trouble with my dos and my don’ts

I wake and it’s all faded away, and in the daytime I’m left to figure it out on my own

need to make some changes

need some fresh feelings

call it a night

tethered to finding a rope, we walk in precarious ways

everything in the back of my brain

told me that I would be sick

when I’m out there

say you’re my lover, say you’re my homie

tilt my chin back, slit my throat

take a bath in my blood, get to know me

and I know you’re good

you know I try, most of the time

we’ve been through that

and we came out on top, because

you’re really easy to love

now I’m down to the bend of your bone-white wrist
