An Ace Would Be Nice


A Game of Patience, 1937, Meredith Frampton 



One...
Two...
Three...
Breathe
As I flip the cards dealt to me
Preparing to face what is to come
Poker face ready

Frayed clovers
Faded diamonds
Broken hearts
One...
Two...
Three...
Breathe

Open Reel






The phone rrrriiiiinnngs
But it's only you
So... I don't answer
To avoid the drama you'll evidently play
On repeat...
And with your stop button broken
All I can do
Is pull the cord

Faking It

I hear your name
... I hear your name

It calls to me
Incessantly

Quietly I scream
Behind the smile
Because I can't get you out of my head
