sad songs are usually my favorite

sad songs are usually my favorite


there’s something about our tragedies that brings out the beauty in us


worry warts that we are

we expected the worst

and received the worst

but made the best of it

like we always do


fixer uppers


the patchwork and repairs you see are all done by hand

and only stick when done with the sincerest of stitches


it’s why you fell apart so easily

right in my hands


my butterfingered thimbles did their best

but i can’t fix you

even though it was my fault


it was the saddest song you ever sang


even though i never heard it

i know it was beautiful


you turned your back

but i could still hear the faint sounds

and i filled in the gaps because i knew the ending
