I said to you on the night that we met, "I am not well"
Our habits secrete to the sidewalk and street, our civic hell
And we covet the dark, share a cab to the park
And you'll let me speak of bearings undone, silver hair in the sun
We are only 30% dead and our parents go to sleep early
We destroy all of our esteem and the sunlight starts to shine through the trees

And the noise on this block keeps my mind interlocked and unfastened
And the struggle sheds skin, heavy breath is a deadly assassin
My sister's eyes flood like rivers of wine in your absence
So we echo each song to which you'd sing along
A circuit hymn and we'll sing it again
And we'll smoke til our pockets are empty
A person cannot live without sleep
And you can't hold up a story so heavy
We tell it so rarely

And in this place I think about you
The spirits and veins that you run through
And in this place I think about you

I wanted to thank all my lovely friends here for the support and kind words you've given me through this tough time. I'm still grieving the loss of my brother. I suppose it will never go away. It's brought back the loss of my parents. This is all happening too soon. Too fast. So hold family close. Or friends. Or animals. And please forgive me for not being very active on here. I promise to catch up soon. ❤

Crave, desolate, you dive in, we follow along
I contrive you with whiskey and sam cooke songs
And we lay on our backs, soaking wet
Below a static tv set
Conversation flows, counting shooting stars and catfish
But I'll never make a wish
Barefoot, parking lot
Getting high in portland, or
We echo 17 and we glue it back and poke fun
And it gets real quiet, I don't care
Darting with moonshine, truth or dare
I say just what I'm thinking and secondguess instantly
And you laugh at me
We stick to our slow motion memory
Its 1 in the morning and 90 degrees
And though now it is hovering darkly over me
It'll look just like heaven when I get up and leave
You're a ghost and I can't breathe

My beautiful brother shot by my talented father. I think Greg wanted to leave before Trump got in. I know you're looking down shaking your head. Peace to us all

Let's count the years
Let's try our best
To draw a map of the past
It's hard to see
What we've been through
And believe our love could last

I will not beg
On bended knee
I will not shed a tear
I'm not the man
You thought I'd be
But I'll still love you when you're not here

When you're not here by my side anymore
When you're not here to try anymore
When you're not here you won't cry anymore
When you're not here
The candlelight
The summer breeze
Remember how we danced
The moonlit night
The harmony
Remember how we laughed

The silent nights
The separate walls
Love shines then disappears
You may be right
For moving on
But i'll still love you when you're not here

When you're not here by my side anymore
When you're not here to try anymore
When you're not here you won't cry anymore
When you're not here
When you're not here to whisper my name
When you're not here to soothe all my pain
When you're not here to shoulder the blame
When you're not here
When you're not here
