Poetry Friday: Nobody Needs to Know by Jason Robert Brown

We built a tree house
I keep it from shaking
Little more glue every time that it breaks
Perfectly balanced
And then I start making
Conscious, delibrate mistakes

- selected lyrics from Nobody Needs to Know from the musical The Last Five Years written by Jason Robert Brown

The Last Five Years is one of my favorite contemporary musicals, and I've quoted it on previous Poetry Fridays:
Moving Too Fast
Climbing Uphill
If I Didn't Believe in You
