where we are now

where we are now

A Poem by fracturedblue


where we are now

where we find ourselves

against the truth glass
learn the lies we've
found refuge in

this we find, in
alleys and cigarettes,
blue dresses and christmas
the spinning flash
of light developing

our grey notions
and these lives
we've learnt to live

become too
heartbreakingly honest
with each other

Girl, it's good to read your writing again.

This is absolutely lovely, and, once again, it seemed to read into what's going on in my life with incredible depth.
I especially love the last eight lines or so.

I've found love and truth in your writing. This is a great piece of work, and I feel as though it's something you probably wrote in a very short period of time. Also, I think I should let you know, I have three tattoos, all inspired by songs written by Mr. Jonny Rzeznik--Iris, Before it's too Late, I'm Still Here- and plan for Name, Black Balloon, and Broadway to be somewhere on my body before moving onto another band (all my tattoos will be inspired by music). I think that the 90's were severely underrrated and I would like to thank you for this great find.

Awesome. Short, Concise (am I spelling that write?), and sooo true.
"against the truth glass" I really like that, it's good.
Good work.
