The sound of my engine starting after another night of being lost in the wrong bedroom. I still taste her cunt on my chin. My gas tanks fuller than my body. I scream down the highway, but only the wind can hear. The lines on the road cut me down like my words did to her threads. For her pleasure, for my demise. Just another body to wear a part of me around their neck. It seems like everything I do is wrong when all I crave for is what's right. Cut me down and let me spill out. Let the world see what I'm all about. Pity fucks and beer, let it all spill out. This isn't how it's supposed to be. I was once a lover with a beauty I could never not see. But she threw it all away for a man she thought had a better plan. But If she stuck it out, she would have discovered the man that was lost inside a boy. Underdeveloped and crying because I couldn't speak. I couldn't tell her everything. She saved my life and I couldn't say a thing. I think about her every spring. Every picture of those beautiful sunflowers she would capture and hang on a string in her room where we were only having a fling. And if I could sing I would tell her how I still remember every curve of her body when I close my eyes. I can taste her. I can feel her. It's like she never left. But she did. And here I sit. My breath reeks of the bottles that bring her to life. I'm all out of flower pedals and heads up pennies. Out of good fortunes and letting my hopes get too high. She is farther out of reach than touching the sky. Here I sit. A grown man I sigh and cry and get too fucking high while I replay the day she told me goodbye.
