You and Me

By
You and Me
In our long ruffled skirts
And our painted pink toes
Dancing to our music
The songs they don’t play on the radio
Giggling and singing
Off key of course
Then around the campfire
We watch bright fire burn dead branches
Against a foggy black sky
Dark and Empty
And I laugh at all your jokes
But I miss the days
When I laughed because they were funny
Not because you wanted me to
And while we skip barefoot
Through the unknown darkness
I try to get lost in the music
But the notes don’t feel right
And I miss the days
When friendship was a 2 for 1 deal
And we stare up at the star-less sky
Laying flat against the cold ground
And you say to my shadow,
“On a night like this, you can almost see the planets”
And I miss the days
When just the mystery of the dark sky
Was enough
