You cut our ropes
left the umbilical
and now I carry around this weight of broken hope
that I can't retrace
and I lost my hold
and blame myself because that's all I'll even know.

Your face shows doubt
When your head feels the wake from the sorrow
Swore to me that you could live without
When your beg/turns to take/turns to borrow
Help me down. I just want this out.

When you bend when you break when you follow.
So you cut me out.

Then you cut our ropes
left the umbilical
and now I'm lost and I can't take this path back home.
Send a birthday card
leave a one way note.
I lied
I'm sorry
this isn't easy
I don't know.

And you'd ask me to "open your walls to this"

But I'm scared, fingers broken, and ill-prepared to let this drag out.
I can't
When you forgot the words to our song.
make this better.
When you can't remember names it's been too long.
It fell out of my hands
When you stopped asking what was wrong.
because I just wasn't built to hold on.
All the pressure built up it was too strong.
And I can't remember names its been too long

And I can't find your face in a crowd.

I made a promise said my eyes would stay shut
through something called The Scope of All of This Rebuilding
I broke when I entered.
Displaced from the center,
I can't find my way around this.
My wounds healed while my fingers fixed.
