Measure once and always cut twice,
Those paper hands are easily sliced,
Nails dig deep into fragile palms,
Those fronds keep rustling and blowing away.

And I couldn't hold on

Darling there's a crick in your throat,
The raspy edge that roughly cuts silence,
Waiting to hear that you've grown sick,
Of all this time spent in-between.

And that you're through with me.

Held a candle for what doesn't seem,
Like how long its really been,
Wax-coated hands that break apart,
As they start to bend.

To bend.
