Sometimes I worry about you
Because I know you cannot swim

I know you barely make rent
I know you like to drink
I know when nights get cold
you find something to hold
even though it never warms you

It’s been a while
but I still have them at times,
memories of us
so I confine the thoughts tainted
with that echo
with those muddied footprints
of gone love
with any mention of your name
I lock away

Still it’s lies when I deny
that I have days where I
feel I’m staring into wrong eyes,
kissing false lips
Have no more fire in my fingertips

Those nights I dream of you

Mornings after
I’m reminded of how time past
I remember to forget
yet wonder
what to do
But whisper your name
when my heart turns
