St. Clair Avenue After the Rain

The Danger of falling in Love #3 (Breaking Up)

We both ran

Carelessly into our feelings

Words like accidents

Smashing our indifferences

So we fled the scene

On the street again I was

Free yet with a weight of darkness

where this heart used to be.

I returned for my heart and

Found you crying

Still in love with me.

We put back the pieces

Now I am no longer light

Parts are missing

I feel it

This weight of darkness

I carry still.
