there are six strings:

E
a name
the one that will haunt me forever

B
a face
the one I’ll never escape in my dreams

G
a memory
the one when you came back and said you wouldn’t ever leave again

D
a confession
the one I wish I could take back

A
a promise
the one that you did

E
myself
the one that will never be the same

six strings
and though you play beautifully
you somehow managed to break them all

—m.h.

  1. I dig this. Especially, the structure; it reads from high to low strings. Was curious, if that was intentional? Working from a high point in the relationship to a low point? That kind of thing. Regardless, I really dig it.
