reflecting on impulsivity and its roots


you had a trumpet until you lost it
you thought that music would make you whole
but it only made you feel more alone

you didnt even lose it
you left it on the train, southwest
to never be seen again

but you wont tell your parents that
you know that they meant well
they thought that music could be the distraction to keep you from damaging yourself anymore

now there's new cigarettes on your counter
i thought you said you were cutting back
the tragedy is that it started because you don't know what to do with your hands
when they're not intertwined
or holding on
to someone else
but now you're with me

the smoke on your breath graced the neck of the bottle
the story it's complicated, too hard to follow
you'd much rather be with lukewarm pink moscato
than the *nice beers that your friends bought*

cause when you get drunk
it's not to have fun
when you give up
it's not cause you're in love, it's not cause you're in love, it's not
