all out

i'm all out
you are taking my sanity

you've left me shriveled
and somehow swollen
and the constant drone
a light blinks
drowning in an empty tub
with a cesspool of memories
and a whiskey bottle
filled with unspoken truths
am in a corner
these remain my possessions
i'm all out
you should remain a waft
that I should have never let in
but my windows stay open
but truly
i say i'm all out

heart: keep the phone off its hook
but my heart has too much heart
as it turns out

rewind please

i want to go back to a different time
where we are different
when things were perhaps
let me rephrase
i wish to be back to a different timezone
it just felt different maybe
time complicates us
winds our lives
negates us..

do u remember a quiet alley
of parked cars
just you and me
and pictures of the past
i want to go back
then press pause
and play out everything differently
or better still
be lost in time
no one grows old

i'm wrapped up in the new you now
everyday we struggle
to see a tomorrow
whatever happened to our childish dreams
the lack of intricate lace on our hearts
to impassioned simplicity
how did i get this delicate?
