in the rain

Broken promises

I'm an idiot, aren't I?

For falling in love, for falling so fast


Written in pencil

I gave you my love, but now

You just keep erasing


It was some twisted game of chess

The prize? 

My heart.

And you had me caught in checkmate


Lost and later found

The rough seas have settled

Once lost at sea, now back home

I hold it tightly


Umbrella in hand

You smile in the rain, waving

"Farewell," I call back

and my tears disappear in the rain
