I could have a patent on charm. Turning your lips upward just so. Closing your eyelids the right amount like dimming the lighting in a room. I can seduce and charm anyone. My laugh is coy and bashful leaking between my red painted lips.
It’s treacherous this time of year. Pair up or split up. It’s when you decide if the person you’ve been tangled in the sheets with all summer should stay for the holidays. Time to get a little serious. Not my favorite time of year.
I am considering making myself a new business card. Brynn Eden-Post Mortem Cosmotologist and Amatuer Taxidermist. I make the dead look dazzling!
I’M always alarmed but he’s pulling fire alarms like they are slot machine levers. Is there anything to win by being so cautious? I think it’s more of a personal sabotage really. Pulling before anything actually fun happens is a real loss.
Done, that is where I was a month before we broke up. I wanted a love revolution and all it got me was 96 tears.
Stringing together popcorn for christmas was never my families thing. Infact we stopped having a tree by the time I was 14. A serious relief. Now we just string together memories.
My eyes where following you like a hawk. I watched you every morning through my apartment while you watched television.
Baby your a fermata I don’t wanna hold
a pedal I’m better off not pushing…
If you miss my voice but
an automated message will tide you over,
If I forgot my house keys on the
night stand again,
If you can slash my
credit debt in half with no interest,
If it’s Valentines and your
alone with a bottle of wine,
If your are left the only one laughing
in your crowd of friends again,
If it’s Sunday night at 10pm and you forgot
we had plans during the day,
If you’ve had an epiphany
and you care to share,
If your done waiting for me
to figure out your life,
If you’ve fallen in stinging nettles
and can’t get up,
If your without the courage to talk
to me on the phone,
press zero then pound.
The operator will be with you shortly
and they’ll help you sort out what
you are looking for.
I didn’t have much to say. The best thing I could comment was the fact your shoes were lime green. That was the only place I could stand to look.
