are you buckled?


are you buckled

tonight i need to let go

but he says
we have to stop
and his plan works
as i feel the disappoint
slide forward, all around
i can’t shake it
like that landslide
you keep playing
over and over
and over
and you still don’t
get the point

until the universe
has decided
i’ve learned this lesson
well enough

just watch..
the sun rises red
but goes pink early
in the clouds
it doesn’t take her long
to be done
look away
and you’ve
missed it
