Why the sky makes me think of you


Where did I get

this fascination with the sky

that means I can listen to songs about it

for longer than I have ever dreaded saying goodbye to you


Maybe there’s not enough time to take it all in

so words are a better vessel

they intertwine with all the secrets

I have wrapped in your world


Maybe I don’t have enough love to give to you

so I write it all down and you

can carry it in your pocket

if you ever forget

I hope you don’t forget


And we are speeding down the highway

faster than I got to know you…

it is too perfect to take a picture of

like the things I remember on my own years later

are somehow better for it


And we are speeding down the highway

faster than it took me

to learn your lips

and there are still things to see

still parts of you to know

and it doesn’t even cross my mind

we might stop
