Me and My Bare Feet

It's too humid here
note to self - always listen to your hair

I was lost somewhere on the road in my late 20's
your eyes caught mine and held me there
and we both went out of our minds
How do I see myself now?
I see the way you see ways my face has changed
I see lines around my vibrant eyes while I smile
I see coffee and cigarette stains
I see imperfect beauty
I hear you follow me
on and on and all around while I'm down
I only ever needed you to calm me
be honest with me, one time only
Without you - I just keep getting lost
taken advantage of
my kindness is mistaken for stupidity
and indeed, it turns out to be
All I know how to do is up and leave
eat grass-fed jerky and brie cheese
and just keep swimming
from spring to spring

I'm down the hole trying to find the one where you did this
I think I need you to come get me
