People On Porches

from by the dreaded diamond



Is this a bad time
It’s been dark out for a while, I hoped you were still up
Thanks for being up
No, I haven’t read anything lately
At least nothing comes to mind
I’ve just been walking lots
Finding new ways home

People on porches
Are people I should get to know
They settle down and grow a garden
And finish what they start

Are you afraid of living
No, I mean, me either
I don’t know why I asked that
Let me start over
I’m afraid of caring
Of wanting to do well and failing
Do you ever keep low expectations
To avoid being disappointed

People on porches
Drinking their coffee in the yard
When they play, they know their odds
What they are and what they’re not

While I can’t stop apologizing
For things I mean to say
Things I mean to say
I can’t stop apologizing
For things I mean to say
What I mean to say is

I just want a moment in the sun
Without all I’ve known and all I’ve done
All I’ve done...

If I ever grow a garden
I will finish what I -
