blood boils in tired hearts
and every bit of tolerance expires
through shouted words
the coldest atmosphere on a summer day

“It’s in your blood,” she said
like we were fucking cursed
like we were always destined
to push away the ones we love

the matchmaker laughs
and he haunts me like a glutton
and eats away everything
I could have possibly believed in

well, you can patch up this house
but I know what went wrong

part of growing up
is watching the knot
of binding love
fall apart, self-destruct
in the hands that brought you up

and now every set of eyes
that sets my heart on fire
burning down the worn out infrastructure
assailing me with nervousness
is just a cautionary tale
I’ll resent myself for telling over again
but I hope to God that one day I will listen


from The Flowers in Your Brain, released December 22, 2015
