worth more

IMG_8197a

all the rain
outside my window
sweet jane
in my ear
saying

a simple day dream
is worth more
than any words

let them go
she says
the wet
sly tongued lies
told to you
with a straight face
don’t beg
them to love you
don’t pretend
you didn’t give your all
with steady hands
she says
fold
the lies and disrespect
into
something light
something with wings
then set a match to it
and give it a toss
to burn in the air
to disappear
in the clouds
far far
away from you
far away
from today
further away
from tomorrow

sweet jane
biting my lip
sliding me
a book of matches
whispering

a simple day dream
is worth more than
any words

that leave their mouths
lately
