Our Songs

my wish was for deafness

whenever I heard our music

all the memories flooded me

summer car rides and weekends

the times I would never forget

my playlist began to betray me

and there was no escaping it

I will not let myself hear

take the verses from my mind

now that you are gone

my heart can’t bear our songs

11/10/19

Inside my window

I knew that you could see it too

since I wasn’t far from you

the sky gray as the wind blew

just from out my window

it wasn’t something new

seeing you passing through

but the distance between us grew

as I waved behind my window

the storm quieted as it brewed

and I was only someone you knew

from here I watched the view

trapped inside my window
