lying flat under a shared sky

clouds.jpg

you broke your word
and you changed your terms
your ideas about
what that meant for us
for the world
we had imagined then

clouds float by
bringing me peace
making me feel safe
you know, you can’t
touch this heart, anyway
it is not yours to save

writing songs
about love affairs
struttin’ smug
but that is not
what this game is about
called because of rain and mud

and the clouds
they leave me peaceful
not sticking around
to turn gray, and
it’s alright if you
don’t want this heart

it isn’t yours to save
no, it isn’t yours to save
