I’m driving you away so perfectly
And I don’t even own a car
But I bet between the two of us
We could get pretty far
Maybe you’ll find yourself in my father’s paintings,
Maybe if you find me instead, your plaything,
I guess I can only hope and pray
You’ll find it in your heart someday, to tell me
Where did you go, Oleander?
The little innocent-
The girl who did everything
Happy just to be out walking
Now you’re bitter, now you’re old
Come back, come here, don’t fold.
Your just like origami, dear
You crumple finely every year
From your dainty fingertips
Chewing ice tween miserable lips,
Just to feel the cold somewhere
That isn’t your chest.
I’ve tried and done my best
But it wasn’t good enough to bring you home
Now I’m left with me, and that’s all alone.
Left with me, all alone.
