PrioritiesI trickled down so far on your list of priorities that I fell off the page.Priorities by w-o-a-nderer
I sat in a pile of other little wanted causes, looking up in case a slot was vacated by a scratch of a pencil erasing another name or subject or time.
I asked you if I was a hassle to you - you never answered.
Instead you told me about Charlie and Jess and Mona and that party you had been to last weekend where you got sooo drunk, and all the rehearsals you were doing for your show. It was sooo tiring but sooo much fun, the best time you'd had in a while.
I'm happy for you, what can I say - I always knew you'd be better off without me.
I talk to myselfI tell myself words as I ask for some sleepI talk to myself by w-o-a-nderer
I write myself poems that no one will hear
I am beautiful and proud and brave
But when I shout at you and at me in the car
I am crazy
I have lost my mind but I don't let my voice crack
as I search for ways to tell you what you have cracked inside me
I whisper the logic of what I should be feeling
The weeds poking through the paving tiles aren't fussed
I stare through the TV screen: it respects its role as a silent audience
If you're ever going to hear these words
I should at least know how they sound
She couldn't fix broken hearts IIso she tried her best not to break themShe couldn't fix broken hearts II by w-o-a-nderer
She couldn't fix broken heartsShe couldn't fix broken heartsShe couldn't fix broken hearts by w-o-a-nderer
So she mended other things instead
The cracked bowl
The loose beads on a necklace
The safety-pin that had come off the brooch
But all it took was some thread and some glue
She learnt how to fix things because she broke them so often
But her heart she hadn't broken herself
It gaped open as she put together everything around her
Pouring out tears and tremors from a wound she could not find the bottom of
She hoped that holding shattered objects together would hold her heart in one piece, too
