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

S-T-U-T-T-E-R-E-D.

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…
