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
