FREE WRITING

I should be dancing in a field or stream
No longer thinking of you
I should hear a laugh that belongs to me
Not an echo of your view

I had never meant to just fall apart
Hanging onto guitar strings
I had held onto every break and start
It hurt me so that I could sing

If we didn't beg for different lives
And the silver lining didn't shatter me
If I finally told you love one more time
And nighttime didn't make it hard to see
If I strung a microphone through my veins
And my heartbeat speak a thousand tears
If I wrote a story where we could change
Would it ever bring your lifeline near
I wrote this after watching a Songland episode where Charlie Puth said "Can this microphone hear my heart?"

    I really like “I should hear a laugh that belongs to me/ not an echo of your view.” That hit really hard. Beautiful!
