My Fabric

You can always tear away part of the fabric right at the seam–I can show you how.  I can help you fill up the void and stitch things back together too…

There is so much more that I am capable of finishing up for you–but that’s not really what I want.  I know what you’re looking for–I know what you need.  I fully understand what this is bound to grow into…

change is coming, it happens every day.  And it’s not that I don’t like it, but are you honestly going to look right at me and tell me not to hold on to just one small piece of any and everything that I love?  Will you insist on telling me that I shouldn’t keep any of it–any trace of the breeze, any scent of a torn shirt that passes by me?

I’ve been cultivating my memories…how do you think I ended up this way?

Ending up is fine with me,

Everything I am is a benefit to you.

Find one whole love ‘Under the Bridge’…

or not.  Either way–

I’m the one.






I won’t be able to separate these things – I won’t ever be able to go back without you.  If you stay, I think I’ll be able to give my very best…just stay and keep my hand in yours – I won’t be able to chase the most haunting memories if you’re not there with me, not right there – just watching me rest.  And when I’m sleeping – it is really the closest then – but it is you who makes me feel alive.  I would tell you down to the second – but now I can’t remember when.
But you make my heart beat and you win the race – take every last breath away – lift me up and kiss my face.  I’ll keep it all together, but I can’t always stop the tears for you – fill me up and feel the rain and understand that what I tell you is nothing but the truth.  I never meant to overwhelm you, it’s so hard to hold all of this back -
Don’t let it scare you…I have to save all of these little dreams from a much bigger attack.
