You

Mon, 01/12/2015 - 03:22 -- Atali

My place is stained with you

I look to my left and it's where we laughed

I look to the right and it's where we loved

The chair that I sat in as you broke the news

The bed I lay on as I listened to you

And then I think

It's not bad

It's not bad at all

It was great while it lasted

And made me grow tall

And these stains turn beautiful

Into the first layer of dyes

Of the dawn breaking on the lovely skies

Of my mind and life

I knew love and it knew me

How freeing

How exciting

How much glee could that be

So, to you I say, most sincerely

Thank you, thank you

Thank you dearly
