I washed you out of my sheets today.
I laid down last night, and all I could smell was you,
Hugging me, speaking my name,
Sending me that smile that you smile so well.
And I couldn’t bear to smell you anymore,
To feel you here
When I know you are not here,
That you cannot be here
My fabric was softer with a bit of you in them.
I’m afraid it will be rough forever from now on
It hurts to wash the good memories of you away
When there were no bad ones to go away with them
In the first place.
And so I will sleep, hopefully
And try not to think of you,
The music will ring in my ears.
Covered in Rain
And Always Love,
Swim and swimming in a sea
But I will try not to think of you,
You say nothing to me anymore,
So hopefully I will stop hearing your voice
Whispering in the trees
And in little children’s toys
Of six sides and six colors.
Will I stop hearing your voice
Around corners and bends,
Around me everywhere?
So listen, you,
I washed you out of my sheets today,
And I sort of wish I hadn’t.
