tiny traps

from by Ooraloo



in the time it took for the tides
to strand a couple kids on the outcrop—
south of town, past the welcome sign—
it occurred to them how far from aligned

it all is, it all really is

in the years it has taken to lie
about all the tiny traps that I left behind
you would think that I forgot a few
and, shit, I’ve sure as hell tried

but it’s all there is, all there really is

(I feel like I’m losing)
is it all there is?
(I feel like I’m losing)
all it is?
(I feel like I’m losing)
is this all there is?
(I feel like I’m losing you)
all there is?

my concern for losing you took its toll
but all it was, just a slow fall
all it was, ebb and flow
that's all it was
it's all it is
