the rain is falling, and the porch lights off. the night is humming it’s summer song. oh, i’d always dreamed of moments like this but never realized their impermanence. oh, the moon’s almost gone. oh, the moon’s almost gone. you asked her a question once, and she’ll never forget the clear look in your eyes as […]
[old soundcloud recording] everyone gets a little bit crazy. the lights, these lights turn hazy, and i lose my way again. can i trust the man at the bar? or the one who’s watching from afar? can i trust him, mama? trust him with my heart? the years had passed, and so had our childhood. […]
empty skeleton, bark skin hides whats within; inside and out. the wind has stolen them, all your colorful friends, now you’re left without. the sun sets, the streetlights, obey the rules and flicker to life, the shadows fill with doubt. the alleyways, corners of your mind, the brick streets, keeping you down, now you’re left […]

it started out like all the rest: a tiny hitch inside my chest. but you had them beat for sure- no, none of them had brown eyes like yours. i gave in and started watching your favorite show, something i never thought i’d do. to tell the truth it hurts a little bit, cause all […]
(this song is from the point of view of one of the main characters of the book that i am co-writing with my bff). staring at the walls and ceilings. old white paint is peeling. don’t have room for all these feelings, no, two’s already a crowd. i can feel it crumbling: what you always […]
feeling childish, wanting you. in other news, the sky is blue.
