• 1. It's never easy
    starting over
    Being the only to remember
    sneaking out
    taking down our hair
    spinning in circles
    loudly cursing the muggy air

    2. It's never easy
    looking over the train tracks
    cold hands, shaking
    going home

    3. And to get to sleep on muggy nights
    it's never easy
    sleepy brain mistakes
    thick air for shoulders
    warm breeze for breath
    Dreams for reality.

    Nothing is ever easy, they say
    This was never true until I lost you.
