Chemtrails

The planes, they leave chemtrails in the bright blue sky
like white scratches on my arms in the summer time.
I love this world so much sometimes it makes me want to cry
when I’m standing in the dust waiting for a ride.

I spent a long time with my heart good and broke.
You got a heart like that, it’s like a shard in your throat.
When everything you love is like the side of the road,
and you got a pick-up truck inside your gut
and that thing just goes and goes.

So I moved out to Virginia and I got a degree
and now I am licensed to write the truest poetry.
But the one thing that I learned and I learned begrudgingly
is that the only poems are these kind moments
when the words escape me.

And I go home sometimes, dreaming of your eyes.
I know that I cannot look at them long
cause they break my weary heart.

So I guess I’m going home to the other, stranger coast
where I learned how to fish in my father’s silver boat,
where I learned what to keep and what to let go,
now it all slips between my fingers
and I watch it sinking like a stone.

So I’m sorry my friends for all the weird things I’ve done.
When I act like the dark, when I act like the sun.
I want you all to know I never forget your love,
it is stuck under my heart like bright-pink bubble gum.

And I go home sometimes, dreaming of new skies
but I know that I cannot look to them long
cause they break my weary heart.

Cause I hate saying goodbye
cause I’m always saying goodbye.
It’s like everything I know gets behind me on the road
and I could kiss you tonight.

While the planes they leave chemtrails in the bright blue sky
like white scratches on my arm in the summertime.
I love with world so much sometimes I think I’m gonna die,
when you’re standing in the dust and you’re waving goodbye.
