just say goodbye

April 6, 2019

Hamster Heart Doctor

We had some plans to meet
You were seven days late
You said your hamster had angina
And your cat had a date
You found a hamster heart doctor
In a faraway state

That’s the best story
You could fabricate

you don’t have say why
don’t make up
another lie
just say goodbye
just say goodbye

We had some plans to meet
But you just weren’t there
You said you couldn’t find your keys
And you had to wash your hair
You really needed a nap
There was nothing to wear
And three of your cousins
Got eaten by a bear

you don’t have say why
don’t make up
another lie
just say goodbye
just say goodbye

you almost killed me with your smile

March 19, 2019

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You got a stone for a heart
What’s the matter with you?

You almost killed me
With your smile
So I’ll be bleeding
For a while

You were the happiest thing
In my sad little life
Then you took out my heart
With a rusty old knife

I ain’t got nothing left
But tears
I’m gonna bleed
For forty years

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You laughed in my face
When I asked if you were true

left for dead

March 9, 2019

my heart went thru the ringer
my heart bruised and bled
my heart was abandoned
my heart was left for dead

Then you woke my heart up
With your laughter and your way
You showed my heart the sunshine
On a cold and rainy day

Love is like a river
The comfort that you bring
Love is like a river
Thawing in the spring

i love u like a puppy

February 2, 2019

i need to see you
every day
my insides hurt
when you’re away

i love you like a puppy
i couldn’t love you any more
i just wanna hold you
and curl up on the floor

you melt all my defenses
just by being you
you invigorate my senses
and fill me up with you

i love you like a puppy
i could live inside your gaze
you could make me happy
in a million different ways

this tender box of bone and skin

January 5, 2019

The thousand natural shocks that flesh
is heir to
are there to
remind you
you’re alive

every cut
and every kiss
says you’re real
and you exist

This dappled world we’re living in
this tender box
of bone
and skin

every cut
and every kiss
says you’re real
and you exist

don’t hump me and dump me and break my little heart

December 29, 2018

don’t hump me
and dump me
turn my insides into mush
don’t kiss me
and dismiss me
find somebody else to crush

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

don’t hump me
and dump me
and cut me down to size
don’t tease me
and squeeze me
like a consolation prize

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

don’t hump me
and dump me
and break my little heart
don’t hurt me
and desert me
and tear my life apart

kiss me long
and kiss me slow
hold my hand
and don’t let go

Neurosis is My Superpower

December 1, 2018

Have you tried
Covering your ears
Closing both your eyes
Ignoring life for years
Repeating soothing lies?

Neurosis is my superpower
So long as I don’t leave the tower

Have you tried
Talk, talk, talking
About everyone you know?
Make it super shocking
And never stop the show

Neurosis is my superpower
Spreading bullshit sweet and sour

Have you tried
Rewiring all the neurons
Dashing through your head?
Tell yourself you’re pure in
The things you did and said

Neurosis is my superpower
Eating lies and shitting flowers

SEO: A Love Story

November 17, 2018

I remember the times
When you sat on my lap
You shared your domain name
And showed me your sitemap

I had a high PageRank
The world was my stage
I was the solitary server
On your landing page

We were so optimized
And you threw it away
De-indexing my love
On a Whiteboard Friday

We had canonical love
It just isn’t right
For anyone else
To be crawling your site

I’m losing my mind
And I’m right on the brink
Why you gotta treat me
Like a no-follow link?

Follow the breadcrumbs
Back to my perch
You know where to find me
In an organic search

someone to blame

November 11, 2018

Your life is full of pain
Things you can’t explain
You find someone to blame
So every problem is the same

You’re a little bit neurotic
And your ego’s really weak
You’re a scared little lamb
And a fixating geek

Thinking hurts your head
Everything turns red
You focus your frustration
On a person or a nation

You’re a little bit neurotic
And your ego’s really weak
You’re a scared little lamb
And a fixating geek

Will quiet desperation
Explode in devastation?
Will you drive yourself insane
Hiding from the pain?

You’re a little bit neurotic
And your ego’s really weak
You’re a scared little lamb
And a fixating geek

hang dang dibble

November 3, 2018

I could be a little bitch
But I’d rather be a man
Ain’t gonna let no woman
Tell me who I am

Don’t know hang dang dibble
And I don’t really care
How she’s looking tonight
Or the way she cuts her hair

I’m gonna have another beer
I’m gonna play it where it lays
Till it all disappears
In a honey-colored haze

Don’t know hang dang dibble
And I don’t really care
If she found another lover
To take her everywhere

Don’t matter that she loved me
Like nobody ever did
Won’t get hung up on a feeling
Like a stupid little kid

Don’t know hang dang dibble
And I don’t really care
Living in the past
Won’t never get you anywhere
