Curled Up

A square lake of doves flying off – now!
Raspberry fields are being covered in raindrops
while I’m trying to leave sorrows to another day.
There’s nothing more in these hearts
than a glimpse of the has-been
and the broken dreams scattered across
those mountaintops covered in snow.
It was nice to see you.

I’m jumping ship (under the train),
out the window (off the bridge)
and falling into infinity
until I reach this starting point.

I’ll be holding a bar of American chocolate in Bristol
where Emily’s been cheated on
and you’ll be wearing a shirt with lilies on
looking onto the raspberry fields covered in raindrops
that are trying not to be gone.
It was nice to see you.
