If you promise to stay,

If you promise to stay,

will you really

not go?

I'm not sure I can take

much more heart break.

Am I always drawn to the liars?

The helpless,


and mean?

I thought like attracts


But here I am,

counting crows 


only snow could

clean my 


At least I have been honest.

At least one of them was,

and I didn't even sleep

with him.

"She's nothing but a sister"

he says.

How sad.

Nothing but a 

little sister.

Yet she has the capacity to

eat men whole,

to fight back

to heal wounded


and yet... she was right.

She understood when

no one else could.
