the speed of pain

from left on delmar drive by big loser



the wicker basket on
the mantle piece beside the framed picture
of you and me
it looks like someone else’s dream

it was four months ago
you signed your name above my name
and now I do not know
if we can ever be the same

no I don’t

a coffee coaster cracked
one more thing we’ll never get back
it’s scattered on the floor
I guess I’ll pick up what remains

I tried to let you go
I tried to balance on a blade
I smiled through it all
a velvet curtain for the pain

in your arms is the
loneliest place in the world
you’re the coldest room in the house
I don’t want to live here anymore

no I don’t

my love was unconditional
under the right conditions
we were moving at the speed of our pain

I always kept my faith in us
I just keep it at a distance
you look up at me and sigh a question
ask me if I regret it

no I don’t
