Under the orange sunset
Our arms wrapped around pillows
Have you ever felt that
Comfort below weeping willows?
We are here, far from home,
So let me listen to your stories
From outside this sweltering dome.
Let me listen to your worries.
Don't you dare say sorry,
Don't say you're fine,
Don't be scared, don't hurry,
Your secrets are mine.
Here it is only us and the furniture,
Glowing with the golden sun.
For now, just forget the future
And focus on the now, the fun
from a long, long time ago,
In a faraway place perchance,
Remember how winds used to blow
Free. Your family, friends, romance...
Tell me more, till you are sore,
I am here, one with the air,
Listening as your teas pour
And comfort you, show that I care
Now there is no fear.
Just your sweet tea and tears
enslaved in the atmosphere...
You talk and talk, on and on...
Recursion. Infinite loop.
But what about me?
Would you do the same for my bitter, black tea?
