swans

there are things in my head I can't talk about

trying to find something that doesn't exist

telling myself things will workout

let's just dance in the living room

kiss each other's necks and do what we want to do

flip your hair over your shoulders

eyes meet as you're turning your head

bite one side of your bottom lip

I can see your heart beating as you're lying on the bed

...softly heaving chest

rolled your brown eyes and reached for the cigarettes

“nothing works out” you said

I replied “well, all relationships end…”

and with a wry smile you looked up

from a distance it seemed like love

put on some clothes and we took off

I know you “hack” into my Instagram from your phone

it makes me laugh, so I leave it alone

just know, you're getting more strange

like when you flip people off and scream on the freeway

“we're getting too thin” with your head against the glass

“nah, you're just ugly but I'm just sad”

you laughed and pretended to slit my throat

just some things that nobody knows

I'll watch over you...

like how I hold your hips when we look down at the alligators in the zoo

or something like that, I don't know

motherhood is not your dream

yeah, I remember when you told me

no matter what happens with all of that

I wouldn't fail you

I would protect both of your shadows

no matter where they go in the sun or moonlight

texted me lyrics from “fake empire”

knew you'd grow to appreciate The National

I replied with prayer hands

you asked what we should do

“let's not try to figure out everything at once”
