poem day 13

inspired by feist, who i just came back from seeing in concert in Phoenix!!

coffee stained chords inside my head,

your vocals echo from our bed

i sipped you up and swallowed you down

a bitter taste without a sound

i never knew you’d be too hot

and leave me burned, i never thought

–but I love you more, i love you more

lights flicker fade and flicker fade

the white walls, peeling in the shade

the sticky heat drops through my hair

and i’m left hovering above my chair

soaked spoon stuck in the sugar bowl

dear god, i’m starting to get old

i feel it all

i feel it all

oh I’ll be the one to break my heart
