It was a pleasant, sunny day, with a fragrant breeze
Pink skies above, sun shining through the trees
I was minding my own business, left completely to chance
Till we locked eyes and I was lost in your trance.
Remember when we first met? I know that I do.
I remember every detail, how I was lost in you.
You took the lighter I had, which I’d saved for the cake
Flames were forgotten when I found my best mistake.
You wanted to run, away from the judgment and crowd
We belted over the fence, trying not to be too loud
We couldn’t go very far, we ran into the unknown
Escaping reality, as the world blew up my phone.
With you I could be myself, say whatever came to mind
Your company was a precious, unique and rare find
I’d never found someone so bad yet who felt so right
Who could play so many games yet set my heart into flight
You were an enigma, a fallen angel, my certain downfall
Yet with an adventure and your gaze I’d gladly risk it all
I fell deeper into your haze as the days went by
Candied lips and smoke rings left me on a high.
It was a dream, pure ecstasy, thrill and adrenaline;
Tripping on skies, racing to 60, where did we begin?
I drowned in your blue eyes, while sipping waterfalls
Till the day you left, and stopped answering my calls.
We’d share so much, yet next day nothing on my phone
Gone from complete and whole, to completely alone
In that moment, I wanted to run, run far away
From the games, from the chaos, give my heart a holiday
I’ll never forget the bubble you managed to wrap me in.
I was strung along in your games, until I let you win.
Sugar and smoke rings, a blend out of the blue;
Strawberries and cigarettes always taste like you.
I often miss you, i reminisce, look back in the past
I hate that you’re not here, time flew by so fast
However, I’ll love you always, and hold no regret
Even if we’re just the ashes of your cigarette.
