makeshift love

you say i'm not ready
that my heart is still fractured
falling from the sky, but
you didn't catch the pieces
("i'm not your fix-it man")

you want your solitude
while i try to figure out
how to get you to talk
(but i can't tell you that
i'm still committed to him)

that i went from soul mate
to a back up makeshift
substitution (and you
said that you were patient -
but you will not watch

me break down, watch
tears after tears reveal
the river where i keep
my emotions and i'm
not ready to show you
