tied up. driven for miles. dressed up like we were going to church. you were right there beside me and i felt you disappearing. i knew you weren't coming back. i watched the light flicker out in your eyes.
too cold for dresses but this is how he said he wanted to see us... at our prettiest. i watched you fighting with the ropes and then i looked up at the snow hitting the windows of the van. i think i knew it before you did. we were never getting out of here.
the van light cutting on. letting the wind pour over both of us. we looked at him and it was like we didn't even know him. he pulled you closer. you always said i was his favorite and i hated you for it and then he sank in. no words. just red blotting out flowers.
moving slowly down midnight halls. hoping they couldn't hear us. you told me you fell in love for the first time with a boy from across the street. you put your hand in my hand. it was getting colder. we were there side by side. staring out your window at trees softly shaking in the dark.
thought i'd never get the ground to thaw. can't even feel my hands now. the snow coming this early seems to be all anyone's talking about. i might get to see some christmas lights on the drive home.
