the kissback.

i'm writing you now
at a safe distance
tucked inbetween greens & blues

mountains and skies,

lungs full of air
& a mouth void of lies.

the east coast has me hooked
and i don't think i'll be back,

not for you
or a second look.

no, i blame you
for kissing me like that,

but mostly i blame myself
for kissing you back.


you are the worse to my better.

the more i learn
the more i know not to ask why.

just fall to my knees
& cry to the sky.

the more i find out me
the less i want you,

and you hate me now
because this is what i have to do.

don't miss me,
don't call.

i've changed my number, locks, hair, car
& will not be here next fall.

don't count on a cave,
don't count on a letter...

i'm leaving for good,

and i can only get better.
