goodbye august


dizzying up the merry-go-around world

revolving in giddy spirals

suffocating you with its warmth

like a girl’s first kiss

killing inhibitions

the vibration of a guitar string

smoke in the air

breathless, she laughs

but it sounds like a shriek

lost amidst the deafening cacophony of the crowd

youth filling her lungs

melting her mind

as he pulls her in

as he pulls her under

and she feels herself drown in the salt water

stinging her eyes

but she still laughs

like she’s invincible

like it’s all a game

oh, to be young forever

she begs

her pleads are swept away by the autumn wind

dried-up leaves falling on her premature grave
