imitator


when the syrup soothes me on nights like these

the spirit moves moves me, through me

and i feel like someone else.

we have the memory of nights like these

when the moon was brighter and

air never held the weight of the world but

we held the lights

and the potential

we were the dreams and the words and the life,

we were all we ever needed.

    Beautiful words!

    Loved how it said- we were the dreams and the words and the life, we were all we ever needed.
    Very well expressed 🙂
