Did you hear the tune the wind carried when I saw you again?
It sounded like a groovy indie rock band,
And at the same time—
An elaborate symphony.
A tune of careless midnight drives
With Mac Demarco serenades,
But also one of a soothing violin
From a classic Mozart composition.
It’s okay if you didn’t.
But I heard it.
Chronic Sunshines filled my vision
And the sound of that bass guitar sounded in my eardrums
Cracking jokes with you felt like the hook of a love melody,
I just didn’t know it would eventually sound like the silence at the end of the song.
Wishing we were swimming in our dreams again
Our Corduroy Dreams.
You were the other half of me
“Drink and sleep and laugh with me,” we’d sing
But we’d also sing, “If you’re ever unhappy,”
“Then maybe, baby, I”
“Must let you go”
So I did.
