weve been tarnished by the weigh of the world and its rubbing up against us. and yeah, i do. i do to you, too. you said you knew what you wanted. well i thought i did too. i used to put life out of me. with every flashbulb spark, a piece of me flakes and falls to the floor. could you forget me? could you regret me? say youll miss me because i want to believe that you will miss me. this beds too cold without you here and i need you near. this house is not a home. is there somebody else? will these be our better years culminating in graying hair and lost teeth we cant kiss from 600 miles away. because when our child starts crying, i just cant help it. i have to join in. and whats in it for all of us, two satin-lined caskets so we can share a plot together? id rather hold you here in my arms now to feel the two beating pulses from sickened hearts. this pain, this beat, this frustration will fade and wash away letting us pretend we never experienced them. this beat will fade. just like a memory.
