canopy of arms


blue dress
no breeze
looking for you
under a canopy
of arms
in the air
we sway
this music
written for us
the words
travel
to our souls
we unite
dirty knees
sweaty feet
unable to stop
my hope
my mind
a break in tone
I imagine
the details
perfection
you find
me hear
I look up
to meet
the eyes
where I used to live
the face
I used to trace
the hands
I used to crave

the music starts
people begin
to sway
I forget
you again
faster this time
your time
is up
you won’t
find me
I won’t
turn around
face up
off the ground
it’s just me
moving on
with a crowd
and a canopy
of arms
