seven

Please picture me in the trees
I hit my peak at seven feet
In the swing over the creek
I was too scared to jump in but I, I was high
In the sky
With Pennsylvania under me Are there still beautiful things?
Sweet tea in the summer
Cross your heart, won’t tell no other And though I can’t recall your face
I still got love for you
Your braids like a pattern
Love you to the moon and to Saturn Passed down like folk songs
The love lasts so long
And I’ve been meaning to tell you I think your house is haunted
Your dad is always mad and that must be why
And I think you should come live with me and we can be pirates
Then you won’t have to cry Or hide in the closet
And just like a folk song
Our love will be passed on
Please picture me In the weeds
Before I learned civility I used to scream Ferociously
Any time I wanted
Sweet tea in the summer
Cross my heart, won’t tell no other And though I can’t recall your face I still got love for you
Pack your dolls and a sweater
We’ll move to India forever Passed down like folk songs Our love lasts so long
