brave and stupid






we were brave and stupid.

and terribly memorable.
so now i've got these six guitar strings that sing of nothing but
                            us.
some memories belong to him. some belong to her.

i love you still, even though i know you better now.
i recognize her voice. 
it rings at 3:30 p.m. when the walls turn bright gold. 
i turn the radio up.

i'm sorry, and you were worth telling.
i recognize his silence.
it fills the room at 11:30 p.m. when the moonlight is thick as carpet.
that will stay with me always.

to the end.
to the brave and stupid end.

  3. i laughed until the wrinkles on my face became permanent and sung of old scars and people. barfed because brave and stupid and you said it every moment. <3 how did this even happen. glory dug into our hearts and broke apart the dirt of darkness until light filled our souls. i'm not even sad. i'm not sorry. God is so good. children from his Lungs. put together with breath and dust. that's who we are.
