war torn melodypushing you awaywar torn melody4 years ago in Scraps More Like This
is not something i
saw myself doing
until my hands
were at your shoulders
and not moving you
i was hoping for a war-torn melody
and the shape of a trembling soul underwater,
back and forth dreaming with the
dead kid sleeping on the job.
he paid my heart with pretty pennies
and failed attempts to hold my little hand,
and it all felt like summer static
in a thunderstorm.
my lips are peeling like snakes
shedding their winter skin
and i am afraid that my body
will follow suit as i find how
i love the way i feel under your hands,
a second skin alive and breathing.
i still kiss like i'm in love.
tell me you hope that never changes.
