sunnyside avenue

it was closing night

and i thought about that photo i never got with you

too timid were we to think of months from then

when there would be a different pre-show bliss


kisses through zeros

pillow letters

and then where will we be


it’s a paradox really

being away

when i say the walls of my lungs breathe alive

i blink twice with thoughts of you


tried have we not to enjoy this

these places right steps take

there’s no trying to need


yet it’s hard to not wish you were around


you rhyme with my emotions

not because you laugh at my not so jokes

but because you let me giggle til my vision turns blue

and then ask me to explain


and i’ll walk on sunnyside avenue

pretending the smell of my scarf

isn’t the closest thing to you
