Checking Out


My glass is empty 

I breathe easily

Every night

That we keep the peace 

Do these old walls 

Fence you in

Just a makeshift home

Before greater things 


Level with me

If we don’t fight

You keep checking in

While I’m checking out

Now, we can wait for 

Brighter times 

Or let pretense fall

And just say it loud

There’s a downpour on the rise

I feel it

If we lose it and give in

We’ll break this 


I had turned around my whole life to be here

Now I can hear raindrops on our ceiling
