Building Towns (12/2017)

Why did you leave so soon?
How did I follow you?
Do you remember building towns?
A note in a book that you wrote down.

Why did we meet again?
I thought I’d caused the end.
Do you remember getting drinks?
Train tracks and coffee, you talked to me.

Some things turn out differently.
I would follow my dreams if I could sleep.
But, I still think about what you said,
So I don’t get much sleep.

There are just some things these days.
Some of the long lost things we’ve said.
Always talking to me.
Honestly talking to me.
Keeping me awake.

So I don’t get much sleep.

Help me find my dreams.
Tell us that we’re fine.
Something suddenly
Keeps me in between the lines.

In between where I’m alright.
