You by Lark

YOU

You pretty much saved my life
Swooped in
Snatched me up in your arms
Too young to know what I’d seen
Where I’d been
Like a stray dog
The dregs
But you didn’t care
You were naive and an old soul back then
That black claddagh flew off my finger
Down an elevator shaft
A sign?
My heart hurts everywhere that it shouldn’t
Remember when you snuck that kiss?
It was the last
The room went dark but I still felt your pulse
You were a bird
You flapped and fluttered
And I decided to let you go..I decided!
And you did
Just like that you flew
And the haze
It overcame the light
It was too much..
it blocked you out
