Used To

I used to watch love take over you
Now I watch love snow on you
And leave nothing behind
But the slushy,muddy remnants
   Of long ago confusion
 
God only knows why or how  
You could love me
It's a fairytale in a fever dream
But God, I'm grateful
For all your time
And those grey-green eyes
 
It started so melancholy
Almost like a sales pitch
Crude and pragmatic--
"Are you happy with your late model?
Come on down to Alexander
We'll beat any competitor's price''
Of course the true beginning
Was "Where for art thou''
And as has been our custom
We found that magic again
In lust and lullabies
In sharing last night's dreams
Over eggs and biscuits and gravy
Over a mountain of poetry
And a vat of coffee
Over anything and everything
Two old souls have ever shared
 
Riders on the storm
Riding another day
For their very lives
Far better than before
Yesterday again...
