Graduate the Lie

June 2, 2010

These country roads tangle like vines before my eyes.

I'll tie them in knots around my fingers

-So I can't forget-

It's easy to remember every face to every sweater

And every line to every song we wrote

Together. We aligned the fragments of words that we


Our stuttering smiles never gave us away.

We fit sobbing goodbyes into our masquerade.

I can't say I'll be missing you in two days…
