americana couplets series 1

January 3, 2014 § Leave a comment

it makes you think how it all went down /
the forest that fell on the tree made a hell of a sound

I might have been seen trying to revive you again /
in an attempt to inject myself into your love’s collapsed veins

allow proper time for gestation give it some space to dance in /
don’t deny it elation or
place odds on sanity’s chances

she was never one for two or three at four in the morning /
I could never stop and go right, so she left
