falling

my sky is finally blue
too blue, too blue
i can dance without rain

nothing stopping me
slow down slow down 
dancing without chains

be free, my bird
slowdownslowdownSLOWDOWN
i’ll dance without pain

i’m more than you
SLOWDOWNSLOWDOWNSLOWDOWN

am i?

eventually

once upon a time the sky was grey
and our future was cloudy and unknown,

so we hoped for rain
because maybe we could get a turn of luck for once,

but it didn’t rain, so we sat outside
on the cold concrete (not wet)

waiting for something that we knew
would never happen as long as we wanted it

so you said, let’s go inside,
and i said, i’ll wait,

but you went inside anyways,
and never came out,

so i waited alone, patiently, for both you
and the rain, even though i knew it wasn’t worthwhile,

because what are we without hopes,
but the memory of happiness?
