Pictures I Can’t Keep

spinning down the hill

a careless mistake

when we used to pretend

fingers crumble in silence

medication catching your veins

when numbness blurs every day away

ride away in motorcars

stumble in the darkness

but you’ve tumbled into a wall

when the shadows come alive

I take a look in the mirror

Look for treatment no matter the cost

Worms crawl inside my head but I can’t capture the memories of summer

When you lay in the distance

picking at your skin

too numb too feel

too bitter to taste

too hungry to eat

Look down the mountain side

when I watch all the dreams spin into days

Past mistakes chain me up inside

Figures break on the inside

color the broken days away

Pictures I can’t keep

Pictures I can’t keep

Words I can’t taste

Deep inside your mouth

Frequencies I can’t adore

When I can’t understand the taste inside my mouth
