Cigarettes & Salt Water

Five cigarettes

She’ll numb the pain

the salt-water drips

down broken chains

 

Four notes pass

She’ll sing along

in wind masked cries

to every song

 

Three cars deep

She’ll feel the sigh

the salt-water drips

a sad goodbye

 

Two more miles

She’ll be at home

with empty hands

a heart alone

 

One last tear

She’ll let it fall

cigarettes and salt water

said it all

 

*   *   *

“Do I make it that easy…”
