A Note from the Author
I've written poetry ever since I can remember. It’s the only thing I have ever instinctively known to do. I live and breathe to make sense and power out of words. As I grew older, I turned that poetry into lyrics, and began creating music. The poems to follow are a collection of lost lyrics. The thoughts in between. Stories that never turned into songs. Lines and ideas too small to become anything more than that, yet somehow still big enough to flash full length films in my head when I read them. A collection of who I used to be. The death of a good girl, the death of the girl I was at the time that I wrote them. So now, after years and years of carrying them with me, carrying her, I let go. They are no longer me, they are no longer mine. I hope you find truth and comfort in them, they’re yours now. I hope they get you somewhere you might not have even known you needed to go. The death of a good girl sounds like this.
