Our Black And White Picture Parade - Poem by Kathryn Garner

Baby, you're the only thing I need
And the only one not to know
Just remember every time I bleed
I still not able to let go
This is for the tears I let loose
This is for all the time we forgot
Were not dead, but what to do?
When what we have is shot

I wish you would burn our album
And cast the embers on the field
Light the match, pour the rum
So my fate is finally sealed
I'm watching them burn, but not die
I just wish they would blow away
But they wont, and I don't know why
Because there's no point in making them stay

I'm meant to see all these photos
I'll remember it this cold December
And who the hell actually knows
How long I'm going to remember
These are the saviors of the sinners
I'll just waste away till I'm completely gone
Decaying away while I remember
I just hope it isn't the long

I knew that we would make it
Sure its only through memory
As for the ending, I can fake it
But I wish you remembered me
I wish the final kiss would hurry up
I want to skip to the final conclusion
But god, I thinking I'm giving up
On everything but an illusion

I wish you would take me
And break me
To my final death
Just get rid of the rest

Honey, just make this go away
It's a black and white picture parade
And it keeps playing every fucking day
I just wish that I would hurry up and fade
I wish the static would take you out
Cuz honey, your in every single damn frame
I just wish I knew what the stories about
Cuz so far, it's only about the pain
