After the show.

You play for hundreds of people. The venue is great and there were even girls who are interested in you. The lights, and the audio dazzle people. You captivate people who chant your name. They shake your hand, they ask you questions and are happy when given attention. Then you step through your own doors. The ceiling fan spins the same. The dishes are still in the sink and the refrigerator is still empty. The bed is still empty. Hundreds of fans. Hundreds of shows that fill up radio, t.v. And venue slots. These things fill your schedule, but still here I am. Empty.

Binders of Women

I turned the faucet and filled up my cup with time.

Handing it out, you naturally drank what was mine.

Somehow I was fine with that, can I please go back?

Indian grab that last bit real fast?

I wish I would have known.

I wish I could have known.

Remember when I said I wouldn’t change it for the world?

Well, that was kinda dumb, you weren’t even fun.

too afraid to  just take of your clothes and fff-f-

ff (this is an intentional stutter)

find yourself. Now I hate myself.

I guess I should have known.

yeah, I should have known.

I try to reset the digital clock, but it just stops

short of snuffing you from my life. Another try?

I don’t even want to replace you, just erase you.

I rather be empty, a dose of bliss please?

For a long time I didn’t blame you, I framed you in gold.

I rode across the city to hold your hand in the park.

After you left I sang to the moon in the dark, fuck.

Either you didn’t hear me, or you didn’t listen, well take this.

When I get famous I’m burning the book you asked me to write in

I’ll fill it from cover to cover, abandon it, and cram it into a cannon.

fire it across the campus, damn this was a waste of time.

It’s okay I’m fine, I would want you to die, but then you wouldn’t get to see me live my life without you. 

You can never make it up, it won’t be enough.  people I love

are gone. I can move on too.I wasted my chances so soon.

unfortunate but true, my grandfather isn’t coming back.

Yes, deal with that. You didn’t ask, but I did it for something that didn’t last

Either you didn’t hear me, or you didn’t listen, well take this.

When I get famous I’m burning the book you asked me to write in

I’ll fill it from cover to cover, abandon it, and cram it into a cannon.

fire it across the campus, damn this was such a waste of time.

It’s okay I’m fine, I would want you to die, but then you wouldn’t get to see me live my life without you.

that might enlighten them

disappear, disappear beneath the edge of a blade

doesn’t mean somethings wrong in your head

some will just never understand

I want to save you, take you, and make you happy with my hands

but it’s hard to do that when people don’t know why I’m here.
