because i refuse my heart its breaking

Sometimes it feels as if I vacillate between regions.

I used to love the idea of rain borders, that line where nature divides the soaked earth and the light gray pavement.

It is that way now, within.

There are days, weeks, months even, when the soil I stand on is firm, when the sun touches every living thing. But, especially at nights, I know that this fertility is watered underneath, nourished by a rain somewhere I only have to cross to.

I see its dew early in the morning, and at times, I take it with my finger and wipe it on my lips.


Because this is how it is with us, forever.together-we-walk-apart

Your Ex-Lover is Dead
Stars

When there’s nothing left to burn you have to set yourself on fire

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said “Yes I think we’ve met before”
In that instant it started to pour,
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
Now you’re outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It’s nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose
I’ll write you a postcard
I’ll send you the news
From a house down the road from real love

Live through this, and you won’t look back
Live through this, and you won’t look back
Live through this, and you won’t look back

There’s one thing I want to say, so I’ll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I’m not sorry I met you
I’m not sorry it’s over
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save
