Left the window open
Scarlet tanager step in
Never saw such vibrant colors
Majesty chirping song enchanted me
He flew around, posed on my nude chest
Time drift quickly, it vanished like sand on my hands
on my skin the memories of yesterday
in the darkness the candles are melting away
You know dear
I spent days chasing the wind,
I have lost the map, I learned with blows a new world. I have given life.
I became an expert in losing solitaires.
Your memory arrives and I become distracted. I raise my cup and drink in your behalf wanting no more than crash on your wet lips. drink from the sharpness of your thought. Yes babe mom didn’t raise no fool.
