“today i went looking,
for discount flowers for you
not the kind they sell for 25 dollars in flower shops
the kind that grow out of sidewalks
and in narrow gardens and bloom in cement
i have new eyes for flowers now
and anything that has beauty in this place
reminds me of you”—Allen Frost
“i’ll tape pictures of your face to inanimate objects,
and place them in the places you used to be.
so when I miss you, I can pretend that your right here next to me.
i’m crazy enough that it might just work,
i’m sorry in advance if i begin an affair with my pillow.”—Avidan Santana
“You’re probably too busy with your work. Or am I just excusing you for leaving me alone? There’s nothing in these wooden drawers to bring you back, or to keep me bored; I don’t know what to do with me no more.”—Manchester Orchestra
“When I was drinking heavily I burst into your bedroom confusingly. Yelled about a bunch of things that if you looked you’d never see for our eternities. And I blamed you for not being someone you could not be, someone you’ll never be.”—Manchester Orchestra
