I Loved You


It burns

As it turns

Knives sticking through

Delved too deep 

Couldn’t stop when I needed

Couldn’t begin when it started

Merry-go-rounds

Of happiness

One ride at a time

Fall to the ground

Dress tattered and torn

Police escort home

Trying to find a familiar face 

They’re all blank 

Your eyes

On the door

Seeing shapes

Cutting out paper dolls

To paste on the wall

Pretending they are us 

Being happy 

And in love

Burn down this house 

Just to remember the fire

Couldn’t stop

Turned it all off

Back in the cave 

Soggy leaves

Trying to fly

Wings too broken

And frayed

Fireflies 

Out of tune

I’ll catch you 

On the train

Heading 

Towards the sun

That will never set

I loved you
