cruel compliments arrive

coming back to the
roasting warm house and needing to
use the rest of the evening to come down
every time i see your car there is
like a gift i want every birthday and christmas too
can not think of a time i felt
on top of the world when you embrace me
may the truth of your ability to get through
pain and pleasure and come out even stronger
little plants across the room and beside us
in the window the trees are waving like
many hands of people departing on a ship
earning each kiss by what you say i did right
notes that a bird sings echo all around
then awaken me from my silent repose
start to constantly be on the move
after all, the list of things to do is written and
right now i have the energy to proceed
ready to accomplish everything quickly
introducing the indication of not just sitting still
very calm, very patient, but still need a road
even just thinking of you helps right now
