    That's right! How many bands out there sell dresses!? These ones are sleek and slinky, so be ready to draw some wandering eyes. All black with yellow ink. The fabric is delicate and light. Note that the length of the dress is provocatively short. Made locally in Albuquerque by a fine craftsman and gentle soul.

You slammed the door. Left me lying on the floor. Arms across my chest, dull mind among the mess. Burning eyes and salty cheeks, once strong and now so weak. Feel the fibers on my back. Wonder if my soul’s still intact. As I stare at the wall, wishing only I would fall into dark waters deep, in the cold my heart would keep from crumbling like rock. Takes only one stone to start. Find myself back in this place reliving our lonely embrace. You always just go away, and I’m supposed to sit here and always be the same. You think that I will just stay—said you wouldn’t get married to a woman who’s torn. Close my eyes and get some sleep. Try not to even dream. Words start to fill my head. Can’t escape you even if I was dead. You would dig up my grave, tell me that my soul cannot be saved. I would be a wandering ghost, you being my cruel host. You always just go away… Well I’m cutting the rope, breakin’ my chains, leaving you limping and never the same. And you won’t find me there, as you walk behind. Cause I’ll disappear, and I’ll be hard to find.
