Notebook in the mirror

You carry something around with you
In the hopes that you never lose it
When maybe you should have left it at home,
Buried under your bed where it belongs.

You read your poetry on the train just to pass the time
But the time is passing you and the train is in reverse,
That train is in reverse.
It won't stop until it hurts,
Til the pages are wet with tears
and then the ink from your pen,
Maybe you should've left it under your bed,
Just leave it all under your bed,
Unread,
Til you come back to it and someone has swept
and it's gone, they cleaned it for you and it's gone.

But you're wrong.

If anybody's going to clean it, it's going to be you,
Why just try to read it, there's no use in lying to yourself about this anymore.
Face the past, about face until your knees hit the floor.

It's when you hit the bottom that you know
You can climb
You've seen it before
But you closed the blinds
The city's moving backwards; no, you're in the wrong seat.
When the day is done you try to go to sleep
Until one day, you think, you hope, you dream
That this life you've been living is not what it seems.

?


Money will always haunt me;
It's what tore my parents apart.
Wherever I go, it will follow,
But I live on both sides of  town.

Mom says, "Dad's rich" and "he should pay"
She says, "do what you wish, my dear, but
Don't throw your life away."
And I'm driving to her.

Dad says, "Mom's not so poor as she makes you think"
Am I living in a pool of lies?
So it seems. He says, "Swim where you won't sink."
& I'm swimming in between.

I live on both sides of town.
The weather will fool you where he is.
The cloudy skies and slow mist may get you down
But drive on, My Girl, just live.




I'm not so sure about Emerson anymore. It's so expensive, even with the scholarship.

I'll pack myself in with my winter clothes
Wrapped in bulk, swept away with cotton romance and turtlenecks
Let your season unfold into the air.
You're naked with your pores
Telling the world your story;
I never meant to share.
Now that the secret's out, why try to stay warm?
We are who we are and I never want to be who I was again.
Spread me out and tuck me in.
Let the glare surround me
and my spirit shall not come.
I'm breathing bare breaths in my brand new skin,
A flutter of moments sheltered by the sun.
Still, my body is here and nevertheless alone.
Taking it upon myself has never felt so much like home.

Out of my mind
Am I out of my head?
Oh please I said
Leave me be I said
I'm just me.

No need to be
Around the world
When I'm only in town
For the next 10 months or 2
Who am I standing infront
of you?

she always wears blue

I'll pack myself in with my winter clothes
Wrapped in bulk, swept away with cotton
Romance and turtlenecks. Let your season
Unfold into the air. Naked with your pores
Telling the world your story. I never meant to share.
Now that the secrets out, why try to stay warm?
We are who we are and I never want to be who I was
Again. Spread me out and tuck me in. I'm breathing
bare breaths in my brand new skin. A butterfly of moments
Sheltered by the sun. Let the glare surround me
and my spirit shall not come. I flutter away from
Beauty and fly towards sensation. Still, my body
Is here and nevertheless alone. Taking it upon myself
Has never felt so much like home.
