I should stop throwing All these books I’ve never opened Into boxes I’ll never see again, But I know how the stories end. My mistakes slip so smoothly Through the cracks between my memories But you’ll all have forgotten this by then. You’re missing out and you’ll never know it And I’m restless with ideas While you sit in silent doubt, A house that’s been snowed in. Sticks and stones will break like bones But your words just sink deeper. It’s too late for this. Existence is the only way out of it.

St. Angry 03:18
Everybody go lay down. Keep your weapons right beside so you can stand your ground. Put your hands over your faces. Hear nothing, be complacent. Settle down and have some children. Pray to god you’ll be forgiven For doing nothing all along. The grass doesn’t scratch The itch on my back like it used to. Or maybe it’s the itch that’s moved. Out with the old guns and in with the nukes. Put a hole in the ground for this state to sink into. You wear your heart on your wrist. It’s as empty as the pit I’ve seen inside your chest. Let it bleed. I’m seeing a shade of red I didn’t know existed. Fuck it she said it (Let’s not forget how this happened) I’m so apathetic. (Like two kids playing too close to traffic.)

Loopholes 03:18
The walls in this empty apartment Echo the last things you said to me . And this lack of sleep These past few weeks Is all that's been keeping me company. And I must admit I feel betrayed For you to call it quits because you're afraid of change. So check, Because the walls are not as hollow as they seem Through the cracks In every corner we are splitting at the seams. Because you have always been what I can't become again. Nothing feels the same. Well what keeps you warm in the winter months? Aren't you cold with what you were wearing? Because it makes it easy to see through you completely. How can I pretend that this wasn't anything but a flake on your failing attempts to start listening? So you're leaving again. (You turned your back to save face you walked away again.) How can I, how could I forget?

How many years? And you took two weeks To find the next one And you were back on your feet. It’s as if nothing happened. Tracking the time didn’t make any sense Until weeks turned into nothing As you sat on your fence while I waited there wondering “What the fuck is going on?” Go fuck yourself, or whoever else Tells you that you look beautiful tonight. ‘Cause I think it’s too late For reasons and corrections. Thank you for the lessons we’ve shared And for helping me to see. Tallahassee, I think you’ll be Better off without me.
