it's done:
two days away, I packed up the last and signed
my name.

I'm sorry you are bored and half your shit is packed. I'm sorry you are in pain. I'm sorry I'm not there to help you and give you a big hug goodbye. And yes, I'll walk with you...

goodbye my cold and stolen song. never's
never been this long. if you're turning, i'll
show you where I've been and then I'll set it
straight again.

I'm sorry you are trapped in your home. I'm sorry your life has changed forever, but you knew that. I'm glad you are happy. I'm glad you drank some wine with me.

are you behind the lost and

I'm sorry you would like to hear from me and I don't have much to say. I'm sorry everything happened like it did. I'm sorry people keep asking me about you. I'm glad you are alive.

man, when the lines won't wash away...

I'm sorry you feel like I've cut you off. I'm sorry that you feel guilty about the way you treated your loved ones. I'm sorry you sweep it under the rug. I'm sorry that things will never be the same again. I wish you'd just give me five minutes.

of all the locks i never knew...

I'm sorry I fucked everything up. I'm sorry you're not older. I'm sorry I know where you are and what you're doing. I'm sorry I'm not over you. I don't know how to not miss you, yet.

when did you come home, too? i wish I'd lasted
a summer more to spend setting it straight
again. and, I go under, every now and then.
and try and set it straight again.

I'm sorry you are so far away. I'm sorry I can't be more receptive. I'm sorry you're going to go away again. I'm glad I met you. Seemed inevitable.
