Love your crooked neighbor with your crooked heart.

city lights city rush city scene
and we're in the same city
i'm running and i'm hiding and i'm lost
but i know right where to find you
you were here you were there you were it all along
only i never could believe
then you showed and proved and contradicted your way into my certainty
and i hated it

cars trains buses bikes
and they aren't as fast as they were in your grip
i'm lying i'm dying I CAN'T STOP CRYING
but your cool careless discern is ever mounting
you weren't ever mine only yours yours or hers
only all i could do was trust
the star lights late nights asleep on the ocean
and merely five street lights away, i think i love you

climbing trees kisses on my scraped up knees
and you tickled away my fears
i'm falling tripping crashing into love
but i never spoke a word
you couldn't know wouldn't know could never, ever know
or you'd leave me...

then you did anyway
and i hated it

The author's comments:
I wrote this about my ex-boyfriend. He went off the school and shortly after we broke up and we acknowledged that I felt more strongly than he did all along. Go figure.
