he said there are a lot of things in life
that don't make sense,
i said i know,
like that time i laughed so hard at the wake
i had to stay out in the garden making small talk with the smokers
for the rest of it,
like the time i shut myself in the garage and went to sleep
in the backseat of your car,
and how i'm not at all religious but i sat in church that day with
my hands clasped and
i prayed,
how i kept the windows shut that sunday so what i prayed for
couldn't get in,
like the time i watched her throw your stuff out on the driveway,
and when she managed to smash those plates even with
her broken wrist, how most hearts start to sink when tempers rise,
and the time i wanted to cradle that dead pigeon i saw at the
train station, and you told me to answer the phone and i wouldn't
because i knew it was you,
and when the night comes calling i always let him in,
i'm never quite sure who he is, but he says
he's paid for it so now i better fucking
drink it,
he says haven't you learnt by now that there's no message
at the bottom,
and i say please don't waste my time, you know i haven't
got any spare
i need it all,
and if i was any sea then i'm sure i'd be
the dead one
filthy,
you do the crossing of my heart and
i'll do the hoping

(going to the dogs, hope to be back soon)

"you do the crossing of my heart and

Those are my favorite lines. I love how you sometimes take an existing idea and turn it around.

This is one of my favorite poems from you:heart:
The way it's written, the phrases tell a story but we're the ones who guide it (in a way).
I could go on forever and a day just to talk about how brilliant you are and this is certainly no exception. In a nutshell: I'll love this forevermore.

This one was rather odd, but amazing all in all. As I said before, your emotion leaks into your words and makes the readers really feel :)

'how most hearts start to sink when tempers rise'

it's lines like these that both inspire and intimidate me at the same time.

Is this about alcohol? I mean, not about the alcohol itself, but it has something to do with it. right?
