i think i forgot the melody.

when we climbed up to that stage
the songs went forth like battle cries
and in every single tapped foot and synced lips
i saw you.

these happy songs about reunions
patient portrayals of roundabout reconnection
they cover so many wounds with sincere smiles

and i love playing.
i do.
maybe more than anything else.

but
i swear to god

sometimes it feels like i'm just picking at scabs
and hoping that you'll smell the blood.
