Dans chaque fil il y a un debut.


I clamp my hands over my ears
To drown out the sound and
Press my body to the nearest wall,
With its spiderweb cracks still creeping
D
O

W

N
Covered by family pictures or a religious calendar
Smiles
And
Christ
And
Fists
And
Sin.
To hold myself up.
To hold myself in.
But I still hear your blaring pleading screams
And I think the wall's shaking.
Trying to push me away
Trying to push me toward you
Toward the smashed phone
With its lost threat of 911
And no dial tone.
But I can't help you
No one can help you
No one can help you but you!
I can only rewrap the Christmas presents and
Separate the beer bottles from the wrapping paper
Separate the rage from the love.
As it all lies tangled on the living room floor.
Graced by the presence of …
An engagement ring?
'Til death do us part.
'Til death do us part?
