All

You can have it all
My bones and the way I say your name
The game I knew I’d have to play
All the days you made empty.

You can have it all
Hands searching for a place to put their fingers
Lingering eyes so blue but made red
All the tickings of the clock.

For I’ve found myself lost
Wandering aimlessly painfully wavering
On a line I drew then crossed
I’ve found myself lost
With words stuck between my teeth
A heart that’s off beat and
A pair of cold feet
Aimed in opposite directions.

So you can have it all
My knobby knees and unassuming patience
Please just take it as I don’t think I’ll be back
All my thoughts have gotten tired.

You can have it all
Forgotten rings left on bedside tables
Stable smiles hiding a dizzy mind
All the time I pushed your way.

For I’ve found myself lost
Clumsily stumbling fumbling pointlessly
Over rules I wrote then tossed
I’ve found myself lost
With a knotted back and chapped lips
Sad lonely hips and
A body that ripped —
You tore me apart.
