Amy

when the rains come I let time slip in cups of Darjeeling tea and her contralto vocals strum my soul like butterfly wings on Cleopatra’s eyelashes

o yes her words are black as the bulimia she wouldn’t talk about and yes the only thing her stomach wouldn’t reject was Vodka which poisoned her but what am I to say but this

for me you will always be beautiful no matter what they write about your clothes or your hair and that for me to know you is to love you and ‘I do I really do I do’

and that even though we never met I know you and you know me at least in the songs you had to write because sometimes things need to be said or sung or unleashed

how else do I say this Amy you will always be 27
