BENT AND BROKEN US

Like marbles on yardsticks. Trying to keep our balance

and waving frantic arms around.

The sun pours in the window. Faces white in shadow.

Every imperfection shows.

I’m drowning out the silence with my ungodly racket.

No one ever asks us how we’re doing anymore.

Bent and broken us. We’re Bent and broken us.

Bent and broken us.

A voice dripping with honey stops the fool inside me who’s

thinking that we’re less than gold.

If our love should stumble or die of complications it would

put the razor to my soul.

And I’m staring at the ceiling where the paint is cracked

and peeling.

So, If you hear something growling it’s not the belly of our

love.

It’s just...

Bent and broken us. Bent and broken us.

Bent and broken

us.

We’re snapped in half like toothpicks.

Matches in a gas slick.

With thousands of good reasons to fix bent and broken us.

We flew up too high, too quick. Balloons poked with a

sharp stick.

Air flows from the pinprick left in bent and broken us.

Bent and broken us.

Bent and broken us.

Bent and broken us.

Bent and broken us.
