Cloudbusting Love


Your hoodie was spread out across my pillow, at night I cross the arms across my chest and pretend your body fills its space.


It's easy to wish for such things when you're everything you promised and more, I don't need a Genie in a lamp to wish for that.


We are coasting close to each other and it feels supernatural: scary but sweet, like growing up with the taste of candied violets stuck in our mouths, or the colours of Deadly Nightshade flowers.


We dance until the morning light, even when there's no music, because when I'm with you, time is just one long day.


And every time it rains,

You're here in my head,

Like the sun coming out:

I know something good is gonna happen...

I don't know when,

But just saying it could even make it happen!
