Last night, I slipped on the sidewalk. Just steps away from the house where inside a warm bed awaited. For once, I actually made it. Walking through the winter night, a misstep turned into a slide. Looking over to the light, two pairs of arms clinging tightly as they slipped down out of my sight. It was all I ever needed to feel alright – to know I hadn't made it up in my mind; to know that all along, about you I was wrong.
Last night, I slept on the sidewalk. Just steps away from the house where inside our warm bed awaited. Knowing now you betrayed it as I lay bleeding on the ice. The cold wind closing up my eyes, letting out one last sigh. I couldn't be more content to die here, speechless and paralyzed. I had all I ever needed to feel alright. I knew I hadn't made it up in my mind. I know that all along, about you I was wrong.
