The Finer Things

"That man died long ago"

I heard his voice resonate through my bones

He swore he loved her

 

Blue eyes he once adored 

But she had green so he could afford 

To stand to look at her 

 

A city girl with children of three

She gave them everything that they would need

She swore she loved them

 

And now she ran off, chasing the wind 

We tried to catch her by her coat tail-ends

But she was already gone by then
