Rob Schackne #201 - "You remember the last year"

"You remember the last year"

You remember the last year
and the year before that
and I guess the really bad ones
if you listen, really listen hard
to all that really happened
how the eyes filled with tears
clouds washed in dirty water
love given and love rejected
the dizzy vomitus of air
now the year’s end is coming
forgotten last car on a train
bending fast by the next hill
I mean listen hard enough
one more fading set of lights
seeing the last sun set again
leaves pouring out like bubbles
how these lips were pursed
against this much damaged year
during too much love & regret
and how these eyes will hope
a new year stands still, waiting
