I kept thinking to myself as I read,
“I’ll buy you the sky.”
“So you can look up and know it’s yours…so you can rain down on me.”
My kingdom for an empty road.
Broken bottles and the inexplicable taste of freedom.
Sunshine and shadows my princess,
and castles captured in black and white
and the chocolate river returns home.
and feel the weight
and water in my sleepy eyes.
