feeling freshly sunburnt

i’m not searching for happiness anymore

i was listening to jake buggs record simple as this

i started crying and smiling more and more

all the while thinking this is bliss

relief poured from my soul

like a waterfall of diamonds

swirling into space

into everlasting longness

and in that moment on my own, i realized i am not alone

i let go of my need for her, but my love only grew stronger – conditionless like hunger – takes me back when i was younger

feeling freshly sunburnt

but this moment all too fleeting was nothing but a greeting

a how are you? i’m leaving

now i want to keep that presence  close Рand hold nothing closer

it’s simple as jake said, but it’s not easy

THIS is just the situation we’re in
