You And I - Poem by Christa Lou
Fly away from the sun and the pouring green meadows
Shed this binding birdsong and these daisy chains
Blink away the blue of the perfect sky—
We’re running away, you and I.
We’re going to a place where nothing is anything
And upside down is the other way round
Where eternity passes in the blink of an eye—
They’ll never find us, you and I.
Where the space between orange and purple
Glimmers a starry sunset mystery
And nothing we love will pass us by—
That’s where we’ll be, you and I.
And we’ll be swallows, you and I
Up where forgotten dreams dip and fly
Away from the caging summer sky—
Both of us, none of us, you and I.
