you'll forget me
brightlightsloudnoises: we were really good; we tried to find poems, songs about us but they failed, they weren’t even close, and there was a lot to celebrate in that, there was success in their failure and we drank to that too much
brightlightsloudnoises: yes, i called you in a moment of weakness. I just got a rejection letter, mostly I don’t care about other people’s opinions but I had needed this specific victory, I needed this piece of paper to say yes and not no and before I got it all the way out of the envelope I could feel the no in the fibers of the thin sheet and my soul that was walking that tightrope so well...
you were never mine to miss.
Underneath my outside face There’s a face that none can see. A little less...– Shel Silverstein (via isearchforblue)
