       This poem is inspired by the new Dashboard Confessional Album, "The Shades of Poison Trees." It was an assignment for my History of Rock course, so if you've heard the album, please comment and let me know what you think!

    dotsHere At The Widow's Peakdots

    I am so grateful
    for the grace you carry
    in that choking garter belt you wear.
    Dresses for band-aids
    you're running out
    and you ask, "but is there still time?"
    I wish I had the time.
    I wish I had belief.
    Underneath it all our story survives.

    Who is to blame
    for these misplaced dreams;
    you lost it to get it all and nothing.
    Alibis for penance
    you're not victimless
    and you say, "but I never meant for this."
    I wish I could forgive.
    I wish I could forget.
    Old ghosts haunt what we've left behind.

    I never much believed
    in your grasp of reality
    that I craved in a tough deceiving.
    Facades for facials
    your smile's a fraud
    and you cry, "but it could just work."
    I wish it would rain.
    I wish it would wash away.
    But the silence knows there's more for us.

    For tonight, I'll leave it all behind and take what I can get.
