This place reminds me one time
in the middle of a summer rain
we lay about our lives alone
inside the silence of our eyes.
You wake, I woke, we spoke of
those immediate wants we
knew might suggest we did
yet somehow could we live
forever in a dream, a state of mind
yet your eyes always told the truth,
and I couldn’t stand to know,
so I tried, though I always cried.
It seems apparent, seems forever
a lasting memory is all the matter
