Michelle K., It Has Been One Hell of a Year  (via ameliespoulain)

(Source: michellekpoems, via theorphanedanything)

And it has been
one hell
of a year.
I have worn
the seasons
under my sleeves,
on my thighs,
running down my cheeks.
This is what
surviving
looks like, my dear.

  • Why is The American Scene so awesome?

It’s been so long since you and I could be alone
And I’ve been torn between home and where my heart is
Our slow dissolving distance
And the chords I mix my voice with

You said, “kid you seem down enough for the both of us,
And you knew better than to start that game”
So I spent that night with my tongue tied, wrapped up in a stranger’s name
And everything changed but I still swore we’d stay the same
Growing up made us ghosts trapped inside the stories we wrote

But we were still kids when this got away from me, away from me
There’s nothing keeping me anywhere, anymore
I’ve been thinking we’re better off, but I’m never sure
I took my heart across state lines
I fell apart hoping I might find
Something left behind from the last time someone tore out my insides

Resolute but weak at the knees
Weathered and withered into a different me
From wanting nothing more than to be anything you need
And all I needed was one good reason to say I had to go
In this city it’s easy to forget your way back home

But we were still kids when this got away from me, away from me
There’s nothing keeping me anywhere, anymore
I’ve been thinking we’re better off, but I’m never sure
I took my heart across state lines
I fell apart hoping I might find
Something left behind from the last time someone tore out my insides

So this is home away from home
On your couch and on my own
Just sleeping it off, feeling this all
Over and over
I think we both know where this ends

Still I keep writing your name in every city I see
Just to feel that you’re a part of everything you swore that I could be

But we were still kids when this got away from me, away from me
There’s nothing keeping me anywhere, anymore
And I’ve been thinking we’re better off, but I’m never sure
I took my heart across state lines
I fell apart hoping I might find
Something left behind from the last time someone tore out my insides
