everything I said about common interest
makes more sense with our tongue-in-cheek context
that we both lived our lives in.
I’m losing place, saving face for the one i love.
i don’t need a saving grace--i need to be alone for a change.
I need less of this i miss you complex.
I need to be alone for a change.
you can tell me all your life stories,
and i'll try my best not to get upset.
i saw you hanging over
the lake last night,
like water thoughts spill
down a well i can’t fill.
then i knew
i needed you.
sink into the sea,
i can’t swim but need to breathe.
promise you’ll let go of me.
