the lawn was scattered with our bedroom. the kitchen table's in the driveway. books are hanging from the mailbox. stuffed with birthday cards that you made. the mattress was the first of us to go. to a couple from way outside of town. they paid with pennies and strong accents. we spent most nights on that thing laughing out loud. the second handshake belonged to a man. who needed our help filling out his rented room. we gave him a deal on the table we used to play scrabble. on the couch we used to write songs barefoot and out of tune. and we stay until the furniture's gone. we will wait till the clothes are all bought. i will say all the things that i thought went wrong. and the cars they will pile up fast. and the neighbors will point as they pass us. they'll ask how much it costs for our love. and we'll tell them it's too much for them all. we'll warn them the damage of falling. we'll hold on naked and scared. prepared to let go. let go. let go . and the books and the cards they were mistaken. for bills and letters, the mailman he drove away. and all of our memories were taken. we watched as one by one nothing remained of you and i. i don't want to let go. i don't want to let go
