Civility

You were the constant

In that equation

Now you are the x

That seeks to question

The end of our wondrous affair




Remember the day

Remember the occasion

You struggled with guilt

Then forgot to mention

The solemn promise between you and I




‘You are the sky...

‘Everything else is just weather.’

You said. And I swore

Then to never falter

In loving you purely,

No matter the weather



‘You are the sky...

‘Everything else is just weather’

I repeated after you,

And in that moment

I was yours

And in that moment

I thought you were mine

Come rain,

Come sunshine



But how could I have known

That the rain

Would come with thunder

And how could I have known

That the sunshine

Would irrevocably tear asunder

My soul, my face, my youthful heart




Well, I suspect, unlike me

You always knew

The sky is up there

Every night

Coldhearted like you

Promising the moon

Promising the star,

‘You are my sky...

‘Everything else is just weather’
