Your bare ankles, between your toes and your cuffed jeans
Dreams of breaking teeth, crunched against concrete
Corner me into a place they told you to put me in

Committing sins
Spitting up my fears
Why do you think it's been over a year?
Scared of a poison kiss, tea stained teeth, and your lips.
Do you ever wonder what you missed?
I don't
but it lingers in
My thoughts and your curled fingers.

Your bare ankles
Rest across my old couch
Or dipped into the sand behind your house
Do you feel diseased?
Am I still bitter?
I fucking hope you're alone forever

Shut up in your room, picking these splinters
Here's to home
And the ones you never told
Why do you think it's been over a year?
