Blossom

In amity, to hold on with longanimity

Light pink turns red

A clear tear can appear blue 

A bright fire can turn to sapphire

Cold and without feeling

Stay with me, I can’t believe the past becomes reality

While I remain presently in disbelief

A heavy sigh with no retake

Breath held to prevent a future, drowning in the same sorrow

Tomorrow only varies from today, slightly ever so

Leaves green turn to gold, red, and ash into snow 

Seasons pass and soon we go

To new places, see new faces

Time changes as it all ages

Photographs will keep your smile uncreased

Until they are folded over, forgotten

Back to New York

Stuck in the middle of Nevada

Neon fish in the sky, flashing lights

The yellow cab pulled up in a blur

I said goodbye to my best friend

I think he kissed me on the lips

Or maybe I just imagined it

Men never say I love you before goodbye or after

Even on drugs

What a crazy night to have run away from home

And an even stranger time to feel so alone
