On this rainy day, I stayed in…
Do you want to know a secret?
They listen to Patsy Cline everywhere
Tonight we’ll start a fire and say goodbye
Take deep breaths
I have faith
You don’t know the monster
The monster demands to face its accusers
that’s how it will fall apart
The light comes in when eyes open
disintegrating vampires and obliterating lies
No one’s asking you to be Eve
If you need me, you know where to find me
Are you sure this is where you want to be?
The blocks of text spilt onto the page
are oddly neutral
They’re just as likely to keep you awake
as they are to put you to sleep
I can’t fall asleep when my mind won’t stay still
What makes you think
it will be any different for us?
Temptations come with the territory
