Alden Nowlan – This Is What I Wanted to Sign Off With

You know what I`m
like when I’m sick: I`d sooner
curse than cry. And people don`t often
know what they’re saying in the end.
Or I could die in my sleep.

So I`ll say it now. Here it is.
Don’t pay any attention
if I don’t get it right
when it is for real. Blame that
on terror and pain
or the stuff they’re shooting
into my veins. This is what I wanted to
sign off with. Bend
closer, listen, I love you.
