i never held a funeral for that big part of me that died.
i need to piece my mind, find a piece of mind to rest in.
needless to say, i couldn't hide.

had i thought now what i knew then...
with all the little stupid fix-ins.
stitch clothes for the characters they play then switch roles.
the holy cloth costs less.
if i still had your soft breasts to rest my head on.
i recalled my issues with problems and hate
now glass bottles break in my death grip.
my bed's stripped of its blankets, comforters, pillows and sheets,

when on top, i let you peek out over my nose.
you might still be here.
from my lows when you weren't there. but to keep from feeling guilty,
now mr. feel nothing saves his tears inside of a cup
jealous of his ghosts and doubts he even has a soul.
my secret pleasures have my inner demons gossiping.

with all my clothes on...shivering...considering the dangers of love.
they get half of what i have to give...if that.

they're foreshadow puppets and i'm waiting for their strings to break.
the pillars that once held up my halfway house have been taken out.
there's a change coming soon.
i need a comfort zone,
to call my own...and always return to

creating memories to remember and then i forget to eat.
with puppy eyes...waiting for god to throw me a bone.
i'd settle for one more goodbye kiss while i settle for less.
insulting my companions intelligence...conversing with baby talk.

when you made me walk through rain and mud puddles on a dirt road.
forget me...not.
i've got more mud to sling...
