The Statement

There’s so much to say, but we haven’t got all day.
Say a statement. Don’t contemplate it.

You’ve been so untrue, but what is there to do?
I couldn’t tell you. But I knew that you knew.

My heart’s in your locket. Your rocks are in my pockets.
I’m screaming through my eyes, but you don’t hear a thing. You don’t hear a thing.
The scrapes on my knees bring kisses to my cheeks.
But there’s just not that thing that’s real about you. That’s real about you.

I know what here and what’s really real.
And smiling. I’m smiling back.

There’s so much to say, but we haven’t got all day.
Say a statement. Don’t complicate it.
